What happens to my care when I move home?

People with care and support needs will sometimes want to move to a new area, just like anyone else - for instance, to get a new job, or to be closer to family.

The introduction of the Care Act 2014 ensures that people receive proper 'continuity of care' when they move from one place to another. This "continuity" will mean that a person receiving care and support in one area will continue to receive care on the day of their arrival in the new area. This means that there should be no gap in care and support when people choose to move.
