Adult social care has needed and
continues to need more.
We still have too many people unable to access the care they need, and a complex, unequal and fragmented system that causes distress and confusion for people when they need it. Despite clear support for carers demonstrated through the clap for carers, people who work in care remain undervalued and underpaid.
With many promises and little to no changes we believe this has gone on for too long and so do our supporters.
"Now more than ever, the Government must bring forward their long-awaited plan to completely overhaul our social care system; this should provide free, personalised care and put it on an equal footing with the NHS."
