Doing social care differently: VODG over the party conference season

Over the party conference season VODG is contributing to the social care debate. Through a series of fringe events VODG is working in partnership with Dimensions and Learning Disability England to promote a more ambitious vision for social care led by disabled people. At the heart of the issue is the recognition that social care is focussed on how to fund growing need, but just as important is what social care achieves. Read the Dimensions conference newspaper with comment and opinion from the sector. While Learning Disability England co-founder Gary Bourlet lays out his thoughts about what people with learning disabilities want to see from social care. And VODG’s chief executive Rhidian Hughes argues why we must have a strong, sustainable solution for social care.
