Abstract

This paper outlines how a care system that is fair for those that need or give care could take shape. It starts from a central point: the state cannot support adults with care needs to maximise their independence without better supporting care within families and across communities. This requires looking at how the range of public services - not just adult social care - support adults, families and communities.'
