We have continued to develop and increase national information and advice on care and support on NHS Choices. This provides practical information on the costs of care and support and how people can plan to meet current and future costs. We have firmly committed to raising awareness of the care and support reforms within the Care Bill. To be successful, an awareness campaign needs to be delivered in partnership—national and local government working alongside the wider care sector. We are already working with partners to develop the right approach.
