Tuesday 1.5pm, Zoom needed, etc


A quick-fire conference on social care reform.

About this Event

A positive vision for inclusive communities created by disabled people and many other experts in social care is possible.

COVID-19 has demonstrated the power of local neighbourhoods and the vital importance of ensuring people get personalised support - and avoid congregated institutional care whenever possible. However social care - for children and adults - is still stuck in the past. There has been a severe failure to invest in social care, to believe in communities and to protect the rights of families, disabled and older people.

The future of social care must be people powered, rights-based and organised at a neighbourhood level.


It’s time to:

  • End poverty in social care - stop unfair charges and low wages
  • Invest in neighbourhoods - create welcoming and inclusive communities
  • Liberate our citizens - cut out bureaucracy, centralisation and red-tape
