30/08/2019   Stand up for Care - online petition

The pressures on Adult Social Care are well-documented, most recently in Panorama's Crisis in Care film made with Somerset County Council. Funding hasn’t kept pace with demand as our population ages and it can only be helpful to the sector if the long-term funding of social care continues to be seen as an issue that must be addressed as a matter of urgency.

We would like to draw your attention to an online petition launched this month by Somerset Council.  Please consider signing the petition and sharing it with your staff.  The petition can be accessed at https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/266020
