Social care campaigns
Let's show Britain Cares
More than 100,000 disabled people are or risk soon being denied vital care and support they need to dress, wash, cook, work, study or take part in their community.
With the Britain Cares campaign, we're showing the Government that people care about disabled people getting support to lead their lives.
On 26 June 2013, the Government announced they will invest £3.8 billion – including approximately £2 billion new money – in social care. This is fantastic news, and a brilliant first step towards success for the Britain Cares campaign, that Scope is part of. Find out how we responded to the announcement.
But the Britain Cares campaign doesn’t stop here. We still need your support to continue to campaign to ensure that disabled people get the support they need to live full lives.
How to end the care crisis
Our reports The Other Care Crisis and Ending the Other Care Crisis reveal that today, 69,000 disabled people are at crisis point without even basic care – and if Government plans go ahead this year, at least another 36,000 could lose the care and support they currently receive.
Yet the support they need would only cost a tiny fraction of what we spend as a country each year and would bring economic benefits.
Parliamentary inquiry into disabled people's social care
The Social Care All Party Parliamentary Group and the All Party Parliamentary Disability Group (APPG) have undertaken an inquiry into social care, independent living and the ILF.
