At the RSA, 8 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6EZ
2020PSH is delighted to host an invitation-only roundtable on how to reform the draft Care and Support Bill.
Community Catalysts, In Control, Inclusion North, Inclusive Neighbourhoods, Partners in Policymaking, Shared Lives Plus, and a leading Director of Adult Services are working together to develop new ways for the social care system to work alongside citizens and communities. Together, these organisations have a huge amount of experience in enabling local areas to make radical and positive changes to their approach to care, support and inclusion.
Based on this experience they are calling for changes to the draft Care and Support Bill. They believe that the draft Bill as it stands will not fully enable the radicalism of the White Paper vision; and that improvements could be made to the Bill to create an affordable social care system which is preventative, inclusive and empowering, with citizens and communities in control at every stage.
The RSA discussion on these proposals for reform will include participants from key social care thinkers alongside graduates of ‘Partners in Policymaking’, a leadership training initiative for disabled adults and the parents and carers of disabled children. The event will be chaired by Paul Burstow MP, previously Minister of State for Care Services.
