Through our RIPPLE Project, we are providing free public legal education about Health & Social Care Law issues to organisations who work with or support disabled and vulnerable people in the community and carers. We want to help frontline staff understand the substantial changes to the Care Act brought about by the recent emergency legislation (The Coronavirus Act 2020). 
 
We are producing free webinars, training materials and information leaflets about the changes, aimed at advocates and support workers.
