We all know that our current system of Social Care is struggling to cope with the combined pressures of reduced funding and an ageing population. The Governments forthcoming Green Paper on Reforming Social Care provides an opportunity to fix this – but only if we can come up with bold, creative and radical solutions.
This matters for all of society and most of all for Older and Disabled People, many of whom rely on getting the right kind of support to maintain a decent quality of life.
So, it’s very important that we make our voices heard and do all that we can to contribute to the search for the radical solutions we need.
To help kick-start debate, SPECTRUM are publishing a discussion paper as part of the first steps to building a plan. You can download the paper here.
We want to encourage everyone with an interest in the future of social care to contribute their own ideas so that we can present a new vision for social care that meets everyone’s needs in a sustainable way.
