The National Care Forum (NCF) – the leading association for not-for-profit social care and support organisations responds to the publication of The Fabian Society’s Policy Report
Support Guaranteed: The roadmap to a National Care Service.
Professor Vic Rayner OBE, CEO of the NCF said:
“I welcome this in-depth report exploring what the journey towards a National Care Service under Labour could look like. It’s encouraging to see a focus on choice and control for people, better pay, terms and conditions for the workforce and a new deal for care providers. I particularly welcome the Fabian Society’s focus on the critical role of not-for-profit care and the recommendation to expand this type of provision. Accompanying this is the critical recognition that care should be for people, not for profit.
“I now want to hear more detail from Labour in terms of what they plan to adopt as part of their manifesto, and how they will ensure it is fully funded.”
