Caroline Abrahams, Charity Director at Age UK and co-Chair of the Care and Support Alliance (CSA) said:

“We are hugely encouraged that within a few minutes of taking office our new Prime Minister has pledged to fix the crisis in social care. It also means that the debate can shift from ‘if’ to ‘how’. Putting the right policies in place will be crucial and Age UK and the CSA looks forward to engaging with the new government on what needs to be done.”

“If Mr Johnson can make good on his pledge he will deserve the heartfelt thanks of millions of disabled adults, older people and their carers, right across the country. All these people need decisive government action and it cannot come too soon.”
