The Future of Social Care


The Future of Social Care

13 Oct 2021
Keynote Stage

In July 2019, newly elected PM Boris Johnson said on the steps of Downing Street: “We will fix the crisis in social care once and for all”. It’s been a long time coming, but that plan is now starting to emerge. The Government launched its proposals on the funding of adult social care, including a commitment that people will no longer pay more than £86,000 in care costs from October 2023. Johnson is also promising a rise in funding – just as soon as the NHS can clear its backlog.

Despite the reassurances that change is coming and investment will rise, many care providers continue to face severe staff shortages and funding issues as they seek to recover from the pandemic.

While a White Paper on reform of the sector is also due imminently, many providers feel they need help now not later.

This session will explore the new proposals and funding commitments and consider whether they are enough to create a more sustainable sector. Our experts will discuss how the plans might affect clients, staff and providers, and what needs to be included in the White Paper.
