The REAL Centre invited acclaimed author and social innovator Hilary Cottam to deliver the 2021 REAL Challenge lecture, to generate fresh ideas and debate. In the lecture Hilary explores how we can turn current thinking about care and the care system on its head by creating something new, where care is not seen as a cost but as an investment in social flourishing. Hilary has also set out her vision in the publication, A radical new vision for social care, where she points to examples of the forms of care and support she believes are needed, calling for a new framework that could allow these models to grow and, in turn, enable us all to thrive. She also outlines five areas largely absent from the current debate, which she views as necessary for any new system.
