Reports on the key messages from a roundtable discussion which looked at how leadership within social care needs to change if the Care Act is to improve people's lives. The event was hosted by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and attended by key players in care and support, including people who use services, carers, commissioners, workforce development leads, care providers and policy makers. The report includes the presentations of speakers Baroness Sally Greengross, David Pearson, Professor Martin Green, and Sharon Allen; views from the roundtables; and key messages.
