Public Law Reform: An Update on Social Care

This paper proves an overview of the government's promise to reform the adult social care law, following the Law Commission's published proposals for reform of legislation governing care and support for older and disabled people, those with mental health problems and carers. It also analyses the government's response to the Law Commission's recommendations and consideration of the future reform of the law.
