The economic case for further investment in social care is clear and compelling. Serious issues creating the current crisis in the social care sector have been well set out in recent years. Low pay and lack of training or a career in care continue to undermine the workforce leading to high turnover and vacancy levels that leave needs unmet, create costs for employers and fuel demand for unpaid carers. The inadequate level of care further hinders the economy at a time when buoyancy is sorely needed. Without further investment in the social care sector, the government’s aims of improving growth and productivity cannot be realised.
Whether we realise it or not, adult social care affects all of us. At some point in our lives, we will rely on some form of long-term support whether from a family member, loved one, or carer. A strong adult social care system is the cornerstone of a successful economy and healthy society. Its future needs to be secured and protected.
When trying to envision the future of the health and care system in England, the difficult question to answer is not ‘What do we do?’ – the vision for care has been outlined by multiple governments in countless policy documents – but ‘How do we actually make it happen?’

What are the key issues faced by the adult social care sector and the people who draw on its services, and how can technology help tackle them? This was the broad topic for a roundtable convened recently by The King’s Fund, sponsored by Amazon Web Services.
Covid-19 brought home some stark truisms about just how little central, and to a worrying extent, local government, understood about the social care that they were statutorily responsible for. There appeared a level of carelessness about a cohort of people who either received care and support or worked within the sector that meant as the darkest days of Covid-19 drew closer, the opportunities to make care count were missed.
