On July 11th I spoke at a Resolution Foundation event on tackling the crisis in social care alongside the Liberal Democrat MP Norman Lamb and the Conservative MP Damian Green.
I argued that we must set out a bold and positive vision for social care which promotes wellbeing and connections with the wider community, which meets the needs of adults with disabilities as well as older people, and which supports unpaid family carers alongside the paid care workforce. We need a cross party consensus on how to fund this vision so that it lasts for the long term. This must be fair across the generations as well as across different income groups.
