Briefing: Social Care and Covid-19
Date Posted: Thursday 16th April 2020
This briefing sets out key issues confronting residential, domiciliary and unpaid care sectors in the midst of Covid-19 and, makes short to medium term recommendations for urgent action. Covid-19 has exposed and exacerbated pre-existing crises within an underfunded and precarious social care sector. Looking ahead, there must be a recognition that caring for loved ones and saving lives is what matters most to people.
