Social care is a broken system, undervalued and under-resourced.
The needs of many go un-met, accessing care is a lottery and you only win if someone is fighting your corner
‘Reinventing Social Care’ is a movement born out of frustration.
Over many years Social Care Providers in Surrey have watched on as our beleaguered sector has been overlooked. Change so often promised, but never delivered. A lifetime in the long grass.
There is outstanding work in Social Care, delivered in spite of the system, not because of it.
Brilliant staff do skilled and challenging work for close to the minimum wage, whilst care and support organisations struggle to survive at the bottom of the food chain. Service quality is under pressure. Needs and wants are going unmet.
At its best, Social Care transforms lives.
As Providers, we believe that all the people we support deserve rich and purposeful lives. But our ability to deliver on this ambition is severely hindered.
