Sign our social care petition

November 1, 2017

More than 1 million are going without the basic care they need. It’s unacceptable, and has to change now. Sign our petition if you agree.


The Care and Support Alliance, with its 80+ members representing older people, disabled people and their carers, has launched a petition to put pressure on 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 older and disabled people are left to struggle each day without the support they need. Very basic support such as help to get out of bed, wash, eat. The numbers of people needing help have gone up by 50% in the past seven years and are only going to get worse.

We need 100,000 signatures on our petition to get the Government to act and release their proposals to make social care fit for purpose, which includes meaningful consultation with those that need care.
