tide responds to the Reimagining Care report
The Archbishop's Commission have launched the report Care and Support Reimagined. The Commission calls for a National Care Covenant to deliver on a new and improved way of approaching care and support. It addresses current needs and concerns through three action areas of rethinking attitudes, rebalancing roles & responsibilities and redesigning the system.
Ruth, tide Chair and Co-Founder, says:
"The report of the Archbishop’s Commission includes those from all faiths or none. It is a radical attempt to reframe and re-imagine what social care is and how it should be provided. It's strong value base of fairness, inclusion and equality affirm that social care is everybody’s business, as every one of us will either need help from someone else or give it at some point in our lives. I particularly welcome the ‘New Deal’ for unpaid carers that recognises the voluntary nature of the relationship between carer and cared for, the rights of carers for their own independent life and the need for provision of resources to make these a reality. The Commission proposes a National Care Covenant to set out expectations and responsibilities for all parties. Let’s hope government pays attention and takes the necessary action which is long overdue."
