Independent review of adult social care

Published in News on 2 Sep 2020

The Programme for Government 2020/21 commits to:

  • A national mission to create new jobs, good jobs and green jobs - with a particular focus on our young people, supporting retraining and investing in our Green New Deal to tackle climate change
  • Promoting lifelong health and wellbeing - by tackling COVID-19, remobilising and reforming the NHS and social care and tackling health inequalities
  • Promoting equality and helping our young people fulfil their potential

As part of the programme there will be a review of adult social care, which will examine how it can most effectively be reformed to deliver a national approach to care and support services. It will also consider the creation of a National Care Service.

We welcome the review and hope that the voices of those who receive care and support are at the heart of it.
