Home – Rewriting social care

“We all want to live in the place we call home with the people and things that we love, in communities where we look out for one another, doing the things that matter to us. That’s the #SocialCareFuture we seek.”

We all want to live in the place we call home.

It’s a core element of a shared vision of our social care future – something we can all relate to, and all aspire to. But it represents a significant shift from our current social care ‘system’ with its focus on care – not on living, and on services in ‘settings’ that no one calls home.

So, how do we achieve the shift from ‘placing’ people ‘in care’ to caring for and about people living in a place they call home?
