Skills for Care welcomes Health for Care's call for a sustainable, long-term settlement for social care.

Posted on Thursday 15th August 2019

Skills for Care Interim CEO Andy Tilden said: “We welcome this timely intervention from NHS colleagues in Health for Care, backed by more than 150,000 members of the public, calling for a sustainable, long-term settlement for social care.

“Adult social care’s 18,500 organisations offering services and 1.49 million workers across England share those aspirations and are ready to make the significant changes needed in how we deliver services. We must recognise their skills, experience and commitment will always be central to delivering high quality services that will meet the needs of millions of our fellow citizens.”
