Image: Draft Care and Support BillThe draft Care and Support Bill was published on 11 July 2012. It proposes a single, modern law for adult care and support that replaces existing outdated and complex legislation.

Whilst this piece of legislation isn’t learning disability specific it is something that will affect us all when it comes into force.
