Today I spoke in a Westminster Hall Debate on behalf of the Labour Party on unpaid carers.
I argued that in the century of ageing, we cannot build a better future for our country without transforming social care, and unpaid family carers must be at the heart of these plans.
I also used the opportunity to share my thoughts on the Government’s rumoured plans for social care. A cap on care costs alone will not “fix the crisis in social care”. The test facing the Prime Minister is whether he will deliver a full plan to transform social care. After a decade of failure from this Conservative Government, nothing less will do.
