Yesterday, (3 July 2019), saw the launch of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Adult Social Care which the National Care Forum are supporting. In addition the House of Lords Economics Affairs Committee produced their report Social Care Funding: Time to end a national scandal
Reporting on the welcome focus on Adult Social Care from Parliamentarians and Local Government, Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum, said;
“The message is clear for the future Prime Minister – adult social care is domestic priority number one – and the combined voices of local government, providers of care and the workforce, members of the House of Lords, parliamentarians from across the parties and people receiving care and support and their carers demand action now.”
“We have had over two years of waiting for the government to produce a reform document, and these were not years we had to spare. Our approach to reform must now recognise the extreme pressures that all parties are united in their analysis of. To take no immediate action in the face of this evidence as a new Prime Minister will not serve this country well.”
