Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook examines the duties and responsibilities of local authorities in the provision of community care services, covering mental health services, residential accommodation and domiciliary care, as well as related issues such as capacity, charges and payment, and remedies.

Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook brings together in one place all the disparate statutory materials that comprise legal framework, together with related materials such as Local Authority Circulars and extracts from leading judgments. The materials are complemented by the authors’ expert commentary explaining how the various statutes interrelate and how they have been interpreted by the courts. The result is a handbook that provides the practitioner with the tools required to deal with this important area of law.

This new edition now includes new chapters on social housing and asylum support, and has been updated to include major changes to the Mental Health chapter which now deals with the new Code of Practice and the Capacity chapter which examines Deprivation of Liberty.
