Social care in crisis

I note with interest the Warrington deal boards consideration of a social care skills academy. With my elderly parents requiring care at home and ocasionally in respite I think it’s a good idea to encourage the next generation of social care professionals. It is well documented that social care needs additional support with the workforce requiring additional, skilled professionals. I would implore the deal board to consider how a social care skills academy can be made a reality. We will all be old and need care one day.

  1. I support this as more people are living longer therefore need more adult social care services. The current situation is not good

  2. Why when we have colleges for this and schools to encourage new generations to study this at gcse and college? Why not campaign for people to join colleges, which are buildinga already built to host health and social care subjects? The buildings are there we just need to campaign to get people filling the courses and what will make people get care jobs is by advertising higher pay.

  3. Agreed, it would be amazing to see this funding going into incentives that promote a strong reliable social care system in our town, one that we can be proud to say supports elderly and disabled groups to feel secure and safe with the care they receive, as well as providing them with enriching lives.
