The Care Act 2014: Survey Results

Exploring the impact of the Care Act on the lives of people with care and support needs

Following the first year of implementation of the Care Act in 2015, TLAP commissioned a survey to find out how people who have care and support needs have experienced some of the changes brought about by the Act.

The survey was open to all people with care and support needs during September 2016, and was completed by 1,181 people aged 18 and over. The majority that replied were receiving support of some kind. Of these, 391 were people who need care and support for themselves, and 643 were carers. 64 were both carers and receiving support and the remaining 83 people did not declare their position. TLAP’s partner organisations were closely involved in developing and promoting the survey.
