Reflections on the Care Review Debate

Dez Holmes blogs:

I am pleased that the Chair of the Review recently published a blog  sharing ‘three dilemmas’ that he feels are emerging, and I will continue to encourage more public sharing of this kind…

I think most of us would agree that change is needed, but we need to explain why things need to change, and how. I would like to see a clear, compelling and co-produced vision for children’s social care – I think the work done by Social Care Future, setting out a vision for adult social care, is an excellent example. I have never met a child, parent, practitioner, or organisation that was motivated to make positive change by being told they were rubbish. Whilst acknowledging the many things that need to be better, the Review must not present all social care as ‘failing’.
