Sue Ramsay MLA support Age NI's vision of social care

Age NI believes that our social care system is broken and that a new revised system is long overdue.

Read our final response to Who Cares?

The current system of social care is no longer sustainable or capable of meeting the needs of older people today or in the future. Age NI has a vision of what social care should look like – "quality integrated social care that recognises the rights, aspirations and diversity of us all, and is based on the right to live with dignity, independence, security and choice.‟
