Health Committee’s social care inquiry continues

26 November 2009

The Health Committee continues its inquiry into social care, taking evidence from a number of voluntary organisations involved in caring for the disabled, elderly and mentally ill. Watch live from 10am.

The witnesses are:


  • Age Concern/Help the Aged (now one charity)
  • Counsel and Care
  • Alzheimer's Society


  • Mencap
  • Mind
  • Multiple Sclerosis Society
  • Carers UK

The Committee decided to inquire into the future of social care services following the publication earlier this year of the Government's Green Paper, Shaping the Future of Care Together. The inquiry is looking at options for:

  • future funding of long-term residential and domiciliary care for older people and people with physical or learning disabilities
  • personalisation of social care services
  • more effective, consistent and user-friendly social care services
