Houses of Parliament

The legislation that underpins the work of professionals working with children; young people and their families is crucial to how that work is delivered, but practitioners told us it was difficult to get access to up-to-date accessible information about legislation and how it informs their work.

The legislation on Community Care Inform tackles this problem by giving you digested versions of all the major statutes that govern the work of social workers and other professionals working to support children; young people and their families.

Our legislation is written by Ed Mitchell who is general editor of Social Care Law Today and a practising lawyer drafting legislation for the Welsh Assembly. A large number of statutes are covered and new legislation is added as it is enacted.

Each piece of digested legislation is accompanied by an overview giving you a guide to the most important sections. The digested legislation also includes links to all the relevant guidance associated with it.

Subscribers in Wales will find links to all the Welsh regulations.
