In this episode of Altura Now, Executive Director of the National Care Forum, Vic Rayner, discusses the unique challenges facing the social care sector as it helps fight the spread of COVID-19.

We discuss protection for frontline workers and supply chain issues, as well as workforce considerations and the toll social distancing is taking on the nation’s mental health.

Vic explains some of the changes to the Care Act and getting the balance right between fast delivery of care and the rights of the individual.

With a social sector in crisis, Vic also discusses funding and the importance of learning lessons from this pandemic and planning for a better future.
