In our January Policy Forum meeting, we focused on the topic of ‘human rights and care’. We explored what we mean by a ‘caring economy’, how we can better secure the rights of carers and how we can advocate for human rights-based approach to care – especially ahead of the forthcoming general election. We were joined by the following experts who shared their insights and perspectives on the topic:
- Dr Jackie Longworth, Chair, Fair Play South West
- Melanie Crew, Senior Policy and Research Officer, Carers UK
- Neil Crowther, Social Care Future
We also had a brief presentation from our very own Tansy Hutchinson (Head of Policy) on what to expect in 2024.
