Rhidian Hughes comments on the LGA green paper for adult social care and wellbeing

The Local Government Association (LGA) has launched a LGA green paper for adult social care and wellbeing. Commenting on this initiative Dr Rhidian Hughes said:

“We expect to see a fair and well-funded social care sector to enable older and disabled people to live the lives they choose. It is unfair that successive governments have continued to delay decisions about social care reforms.

The lives we want to lead from the Local Government Association is a very welcome initiative. Where central government stalls, local government is helping to keep adult social care firmly on the agenda. We all need to engage with the questions in this report, raise the debate and fill the void left by central government’s lack of policy progress.”
