Care Trust

A Care Trust is an ORGANISATION in England and Wales.

Care Trusts were introduced in 2002 to provide better-integrated health and social care.

Care Trusts are set up when the NHS and Local Authorities formally agree to work closely together, usually where it is felt that a closer relationship between health and social care is needed or would benefit local care services.

Care Trusts may carry out a range of SERVICES, including social care, mental health services or community services.
