ADASS sets out nine elements of social care reform

Adult social care leaders have published nine statements to help shape adult social care reform:

  • Public conversation about adult social care reform: what care and support we want and how we pay for it.  
  • Joined up and coordinated care around the individual, where possible in the domiciliary environment
  • Complete review of how care markets operate, considering suitability, sufficiency, sustainability, social value and quality of provision, and regulation
  • Address existing and historical inequalities, particularly for people with learning disabilities and mental health, and substance misuse issues, older people, those at the end of their lives, women and BAME communities
  • People should be supported to live at home and remain in their communities unless their needs can only be met elsewhere
  • A workforce strategy, comprising fair national care wages, training and career progression, together with greater support for informal carers
  • Access to technological and digital solutions
  • A cross-Government strategy setting out the role that social care plays in communities and societies.
  • Funded and managed transition arrangements that ensure service continuity.

Association of directors of adult social care services (ADASS) president James Bullion said: “Social care transforms and enables, we must now enable social care to do what it does best. The prize is adult social care that is truly fit for the twenty-first century.”
