Unit: Unit 3: Governance in Adult Care
Learning outcome: 1 Understand the legislative and policy context of adult care provision
Assessment criteria: 1.2 Evaluate the impact of legislation, policy and key drivers on service provision

  • Legislation refers to laws that have been passed in parliament (e.g. the Care Act 2014)
  • Policy refers to a set of principles that are designed to guide actions (e.g. the Care Act Statutory Guidance)
  • Key drivers are factors which push forward change (e.g. an ageing population means that more services will be needed for the older generations)
  • Key drivers lead to changes in policy and legislation
  • In turn, legislation, policy and key drivers impact service provision because care providers must work within the boundaries of the law and best practices
  • For example, the outbreak of the coronavirus was a key driver in governmental policies relating to social distancing, wearing facemasks and lockdown, which was legislated by the Coronavirus Act 2020
