From better services for some, to better lives for us all

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has kindly published a blog today, in which I argue that the government’s reform of adult social care needs to start not with systems, organisations or even money, but with what kinds of support relationship we want to see in our care homes, home care and community care services. It’s here:

“Reforming adult social care is one of those huge challenges which can only be met by thinking even bigger: a transformed understanding of what we mean by social care support, and ambitious programmes to scale up the best models and scale down those we know do not work.”
