Call for all to be ambitious for social care, despites financial pressuresCall for all to be ambitious for social care, despites financial pressures

Glen Garrod, President of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, opening the NCASC conference recently in Manchester, warned about the health of the social care market and said 'Both big and small scale providers are clearly distressed and whilst many continue to survive, how many are thriving - too few.'

Glen cited a careworker who, in one day, was a cleaner, a cook, a hand to hold, a friendly face, a washer, a dresser, a helper, and a carer' and concluded we should be ambitious for social care, because those who are served and serve others are worth it.


Colin Angel, Policy Director, UKHCA, participated in a sub-plenary session on the State of Adult Social Care Funding: Securing Short-Term Sustainability, on behalf of the Care Provider Alliance.
