Care can't wait

Housing 21 is just one of the members of the Care and Support Alliance, who signed  an open letter to the Prime Minister,  highlighting the funding problems for social care and urging him to take action by convening a care summit in advance of the Social Care White paper. Signed by 78 organisations, this letter has been published today in the Daily Mail.

The Care and Support Alliance is a group of some 70 national charities, housing associations and membership bodies representing older and disabled people, their families and carers. All these organisations share a concern that the social care system is chronically underfunded. As a result, the Alliance is working to influence Government in a range of ways before it publishes a White Paper on social care later this spring.

If you would like to help put pressure on the Government to take action, you can either:

  • Email the Prime Minister’s Office through the Number 10 website
  • Tweet the Prime Minister at @Number10gov. Please use the hashtag #carecantwait.
