Social Care in England Underfunded and in Crisis (BBC News)

Summary

Seventy-eight organisations, including the Alzheimer’s Society, have jointly written an open letter to the Prime Minister to raise their concerns about social care in England being chronically under-funded and in crisis. The letter asks David Cameron to push forward with reforms of social care.

The government acknowledges the system needs to be changed, and says cross-party talks are underway. 

The Care and Support Alliance is an alliance which represents charities, carers, health professionals, councils and employers.
