SCIE welcomes the new taskforce for the social care plan
09 June 2020
The Chief Executive of the Social Care Institute for Excellence, Kathryn Smith, today welcomes the announcement of a new taskforce to oversee the implementation of its social care action plan. Kathryn Smith says:
Planning for social care beyond COVID-19 is something we’ve been talking about with partners a lot; so it’s great news that the taskforce has been created and that it will be led by David Pearson, who has written for us about COVID-19 and integration. I’m sure that with David heading up the taskforce, he and others in the sector will persuade many that social care, at its best, isn’t just operating in crisis, but also enables people to maintain their independence and to live the best lives that they can.
