Liz speaks at ‘It’s Our Community’ Conference

[16/02/2021 | No comment]

Today, I spoke at the ‘It’s Our Community’ Conference, organised by the Yorkshire Socialist Health Association. It brought together providers, users, families and voluntary groups across Sheffield to discuss the need to transform social care and support for disabled adults in particular. I spoke about the prospects for the future, and how we can achieve them.

I believe that this pandemic has showed exactly why we need social care reform. We need a real transformation backed up with proper funding, as well as an immediate cash injection.

Any changes to social care must to prioritise prevention and early intervention. People using social care should also have a say over how it’s delivered, and we must make sure that those using social care can live the lives they want to lead.
