#socialcarefuture is a growing movement of people with a shared commitment to bring about major positive change in what is currently called “social care.” It’s for those who want to take part in imagining, communicating and creating together a future where what we currently call social care makes a major contribution to everyone’s wellbeing and which, as a result, will enjoy high levels of public – and hence political – support.
Those coming together via this growing movement include people whose insight and expertise comes from drawing on social care, families, professionals, managers, support providers, user-led organisations, politicians, commissioners, community groups and others.
We work together in variety of ways to pursue the shared vision to the left. It’s a vision that will require significant change in what social care does and how it works, moving away from institutional practices by shifting power to people and communities. But it’s a vision we already see inspiring great new approaches all around us.
