star this property answer text <p>Local authorities have a duty to ensure people including those with dementia receive appropriate care and support.</p><p>Adult social care is a locally delivered system therefore local authorities are locally accountable for the delivery of care and support and retain significant discretion over how their functions are exercised. Different communities require different social care provision and local authorities are best placed to understand the needs of their constituents.</p><p> </p><p>We have given local authorities access to up to £3.9 billion more dedicated funding for adult social care this year, and a further £410 million is available for adults and children’s services. The Government will set out plans to reform the social care system to ensure it is sustainable for the future at the earliest opportunity.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Challenge on Dementia 2020, published in February 2015, set the expectation that social care providers deliver appropriate training on dementia to all relevant staff, however we have no plans to make dementia training compulsory in care homes for older people.</p><p> </p><p>Since April 2015, newly appointed health care assistants and social care support workers, including those who will provide care and support to people with dementia in care homes have been undergoing training as part of the national implementation of the Care Certificate. The Care Certificate equips new staff with the knowledge and skills which they need to provide safe, compassionate care across a range of areas, including the care of people with dementia.</p><p> </p><p>There is no statutory requirement for providers to implement the Care Certificate. Care Quality Commission inspectors do, however, have powers to enforce regulations covering staff induction and training. As such, they would expect to see induction programmes that are broadly equivalent to the Care Certificate standards.</p>
