The future of adult social care – the LGA
The LGA say:
Over the last year, social care has demonstrated that it is not simply a set of services some people need because of age or disability, but is a key means by which people are supported to live a full life, whatever their circumstances.
Everyone should be able to live the life they want to lead; to connect to what makes us feel alive and valued. To feel human.
This is common to us all.
Social care is about supporting people to achieve this when age or disability might otherwise be a barrier. It is used in every community when needed to enable adults of all ages to do whatever helps grow and sustain their wellbeing.
In this way, social care is common to us all, too.
