Who are we?

We are a group of individuals, mostly with a health and social care background in the UK, who share a vision of a National Social Care Service (NSCS), funded through general taxation, which will provide the high-quality social care that the people of this country deserve.

What do we want to achieve?

Through raising awareness and mobilising public opinion, we hope to produce an environment in which all political parties see it as imperative that, rather than yet more reports, they act now to implement policies that will provide fundamental changes to the provision of social care in the UK that will provide justice for the more vulnerable members of our society.

Why is this necessary?

The recent pandemic has highlighted the severe shortcoming of the current provision of social care in the UK. The development of a NSCS in the wake of the pandemic would provide an infrastructure project comparable to the development of the NHS after the second world war. This could provide the badly needed support for those in the UK who are most in need, whether through age, dementia, disability, long-term health difficulties, or as a result of providing voluntary care for a loved one. In doing so, it would create a lasting legacy, meet the aims of ‘building back better’ and provide employment for many of those whose jobs have been threatened by the pandemic.

How will we achieve this?

  • Raising awareness of the issues and mobilising public opinion with a widespread campaign through social, print and broadcast media.
  • Identifying a group of opinion leaders, celebrities and high-profile organisations who will join us in supporting and promoting the campaign.
