The Big Social Care Survey
Last year, the Government announced that it will be looking at reforming social care in 2018. The Government will want to hear the views of the public on their proposals and will be holding a consultation in the summer, which will be a key opportunity for organisations and individuals to respond and influence the plans.
The Care and Support Alliance (CSA) want to hear from people who have experience with adult social care, so that they can tell the Government what social care looks like now and what needs to change, and use this information to influence their proposals.
Many people living with MND rely on social care services provided by their local authority on a daily basis. This is where personal and practical care support is provided to help with managing daily routines and lead as independent a life as possible. At a basic level this can be help with washing, dressing, getting in and out of bed in the morning, help with taking medicine, and may include the provision of equipment and aids.
The MND Association is a member of the CSA, which was set up to campaign for a properly funded care system alongside the millions of older people, disabled people and their carers who deserve decent care.
We want the Government to hear the experiences of people and their families who need or have needed adult social care and support, so please take 15 minutes to tell us your experience!
We want to make sure the social care system works for people living with and affected by MND who rely on it to meet their needs.
