Social work law is at the foundation of all social work practice, from shaping professional boundaries to determining the level of intervention. Every case is complex and unique and therefore requires different legal treatment; this means it is absolutely vital that social workers not only understand the law, but are able to critically analyse the legal framework and apply it to their practice. This book provides students and practitioners with an essential guide to adult social care law. It lays out the key case law, core legislation and the HSPCC standards as they apply to different areas of adult social care. This includes issues of capacity, making an assessment, supporting carers and working with vulnerable adults. Designed to support learning needs, the book is packed with engaging case studies and reflective exercises, as well as a legal toolbox to help simplify the legal jargon. Whether you are a student or practitioner, this is a practical, accessible guide to competent and lawful practice in adult social care.
