Care in Crisis Report launch

This week we will launch our new report, “Why call it care when nobody cares?”, at our Annual Parliamentary Reception. Our report is built on the stories of 127 older people and their families who were involved in listening events around the country. We supported local partners across England to hold these events with their local MPs. The report summarises older people's experiences of adult social care and what they want to see from the Government’s forthcoming Green Paper consultation.

Care in Crisis


We have launched a Government petition in the hope of getting 100,000 signatures. We’re calling on the Government to bring forward their plans for a social care Green Paper, in early 2018, which includes meaningful consultation with older people.
