When the Government announced in June that its care and support green paper would be further delayed until the autumn, the LGA decided to act.
In July 2018, the LGA published ‘The lives we want to lead’ our own green paper for adult social care and wellbeing.
The response to our green paper, and its thirty consultation questions, has been significant. We have received more than 540 submissions and we have gathered further valuable insights individuals and organisations through public polling and focus groups.
This report outlines the findings of this consultation and their implications for social care. It also sets out our fourteen recommendations to the Government from the consultation for achieving two key objectives: stabilising and sustaining the here and now; and moving towards a system that we know could be better.
