What do people want from social care?

Last year, local Healthwatch identified social care as one of the key priority areas for their communities in the year ahead. Here we share an overview on what people have told us they want from social care in the future.

It is a critical time for social care. The government’s review and upcoming green paper offers a chance to reform, improve and develop the capacity of the sector so that it is fit to meet the current and future needs of our population.

We want to ensure that the green paper focuses on what matters most to people who are currently using or will need to use these services in the future.

This briefing summarises what we have found through our research.
