Petition On Social Care Reform
20 December 2019
The Neurological Alliance has launched a joint campaign to raise the profile of people with neurological conditions in the conversation around social care.
Access to care for working age people with chronic conditions and disabilities must be prioritised. Failing this, the recent public discussion about ending the care crisis will come to nothing. Current proposals relating to care for older people, funding increases, and driving recruitment in social care are essential but do not go far enough.
So, together with Change.org and Epilepsy Action, they have launched a petition. They are calling on Government, local authorities, and all political parties to commit to prioritising working age people with neurological conditions in their plans for social care.
