‘Caring for our future’ workshops

The first of four half-day workshops will be taking place tomorrow and will bring together the discussion leaders from the care and support community and reference group members. Taking place on 17, 22, 25 November and 2 December, the workshops will allow attendees to:

  • review the insight collected to date as part of the ‘Caring for our future’ engagement on the key parts of the social care system that require reform
  • discuss and test the initial proposed priorities for change for each discussion area, alongside the recommendations from the Commission on Funding of Care and Support and the Law Commission
  • consider the overall priorities for social care reform, taking into account the economic context

Developing a view of priorities during these workshops will be an iterative process as feedback from the ongoing engagement continues to come in, via the various events that will be taking place up until 2 December as well as the different feedback routes, including the feedback form and emails to the Caring for our future mailbox.

A summary of the discussions at each workshop will be published on this website shortly after each one has taken place. A complete summary of the workshop discussions in easy read format will also be published in December.

In the meantime, please continue to tell us what you think by sending in your feedback forms or providing your comments directly by posting them on this website, before 2 December.

    quality of care costs money. I have worked in social care a long time and believe that you can only provide quality if systems are in place that ensure that staff are well trained and monitored. Everyone is different and I have found that people need to be told what is required.
    Over the past 3 years across the country local authorities have cut budgets to adult social care. My services have had no uplift for 3 years from some local authorities yet costs are rising steeply. The staff team have had no pay rise for 2 years. The services that we provide are to a very high standard of care but this takes time money and investment to training.
    I have found that local authorities go for the cheaper option, which I have found to be of poor quality if I have visited these services.Why do inspection teams not see this ?? I think they also need to define quality ‘what does good look like’
