Joining local debate on Social Care

[05/02/2018 | No comment]

On Friday I joined local carers at Age UK’s Listening Event in Leicester. This event is one of a series they are running across the country to listen to the experiences of older people and their carers. 

All the experiences and feedback from the carers will be brought together and form part of the Age UK’s Green Paper on Social Care.

In Leicester today a group of carers told AGE UK the three biggest issues are: the need to listen to older people; give more support for stretched family carers who may work as well as being full-time carers; and the need for additional ring-fenced funding.
