Social care inquiry continues

19 November 2009

The Health Committee holds the latest evidence session in its inquiry into the future of social care services with a number of community and home care assocations. Watch live from 10am.

The witnesses are:

  • National Care Association
  • English Community Care Association
  • UK Homecare Association
  • Partnership Life Assurance Company Ltd
  • William Laing

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
