The aim of the Care Standards Act 2000 is

  • Make a confirmation of care to the vulnerable people,
  • Proper regulation of various types of housing,
  • Improvement of the care standards and
  • Make stability to the regulation of provided services

This Act introduces a regulatory body for social care which is independent in nature. It is known as “National Care Standards Commission”. It monitors the care homes nationally and local inspectorate units no longer regulate them. As-

  • It is the duty of the Government to introduce necessary standards of health and social care

Care standard act is useful for:

  • “The Care Standards Act 2000”
  • “The Registration Regulations 2010”, and
  • “The Fostering Services Regulations 2011”

That Care Commission started work independently in April 2002 under theregulation of Care Act 2001. The key objective of it is:
