Caring for our Future: Reforming care and support
The Government published a White Paper on the 11 July 2012 in which it set out plans to transform care and support in two major ways.
- to promote people’s wellbeing and independence instead of waiting for people to reach a crisis point.
- to transform people’s experience of care and support, putting them in control and ensuring that services respond to what they want.
The White Paper lists five statements which describe what government expects people will say about the new system. Click on the statements below for useful SCIE resources to help you achieve transformed services in each of these areas.
I am supported to maintain my independence for as long as possible.
I understand how care and support works, and what my entitlements and responsibilities are.
I am happy with the quality of my care and support.
I know that the person giving me care and support will treat me with dignity and respect.
I am in control of my care and support.
