As part of the Care and Support Alliance, the Patients Association has launched a petition to ensure the Government to bring forward their proposals to fix the social care system so it helps all those that need it.
Right now, over one million disabled and older people are left to struggle each day without the support they need. This includes very basic support such as help to get out of bed, wash, and eat. The numbers of people needing help have gone up by 50% in the past seven years and are only going to get larger.
We need 100,000 signatures on our petition to get the Government to act and publish their proposals to give people the basic support they need, which includes meaningful consultation with those who need care
