The Care Act - Policies
We have developed a framework of policies to implement the Care Act in Dorset.
Statutory guidance from the Department of Health provides councils with information about how they 'must', 'should', or 'may', meet the legal obligations placed on them by the Care Act and its associated regulations.
Our policies are designed to make sure that we deliver what the statutory guidancesays that we 'must' or 'should' do.
