  • About
    Many people want to live well and independently at home into older age.

    Over 10 million people at any one time receive or need support and care in their own homes.

    But the government only spends the equivalent of 4% of the NHS budget on home care.

    State-funded homecare providers entered the Coronavirus pandemic in a weakened state, after years of under-funding, and then had to manage increased costs due to PPE requirements.

    It has led to low pay and poor conditions for the home care workforce, with widespread zero-hour contracts and minimum wages, and brief visits for clients.

    Many providers now eschew council-funded care and focus on private individuals willing to pay a sustainable price.

    The sector wants a cross-party consensus on the way forward, but governments have repeatedly failed to come forward with proposals.

    It’s an innovative sector with new models of care emerging and advances in assistive technology. With the right support, there are real opportunities to deliver preventative services that promote health and independence.

    This session will explore what is needed to make this a reality.
