A vision for care fit for the twenty-first century: Commission on Residential Care



The Commission on Residential Care describes how ‘residential care’ can shift from being a service that most people dread, to one that helps people live the lives they want. It makes recommendations for national and local government, the NHS and other partners. Core to this is a proposal to separate the elements of ‘care’ and ‘housing’ in assessment, commissioning, provision and regulation.

This briefing will be of interest to councillors and officers in councils with adult social care responsibilities, and to all those who seek to improve social care services in their areas.
