What is Community Care Law?

There is no definition of the term community care in law but it has been interpreted to mean the provision of both social and health care, so includes services such as:

  • Support at home and in the community
  • Disability aids, adaptations, services and facilities
  • NHS Continuing Care and Hospital Discharge procedure
  • Advice and support for carers
  • Mental Capacity and Court of Protection
  • Social services and health care support for migrants and asylum seekers
  • Unaccompanied asylum seeking children
  • Support for victims of trafficking

Community Care Law is about challenging the decisions or failures that affect people who need to use these services
