Care England has launched its vision for adult social care, We Care For England.
The vision is premised around five key themes, each of which presents a key ask of government:
Professor Martin Green, chief executive of Care England, said: ‘Successive governments have promised social care reform but have not delivered.
‘We Care For England represents the foundation for a long-term and sustainable future for adult social care that will be to the benefit of all citizens and the economy.
‘The vision calls on the government to deliver a new system of support in which health and social care systems act in a coordinated fashion-focused around the person and are financed adequately and appropriately.
‘The sector is brimming with innovation, energy and commitment which Care England, with the help of its members, can harness.
‘Care England has submitted this vision to the Prime Minister, along with other key policymakers. We are ready and waiting to help Government reach a definitive solution.’
The resources for the vision can be found here.
Care England would strongly encourage all those involved in adult social care to bring light to these themes and asks with the hashtag #WeCareForEngland.
