That’s why we’re working in partnership with the Care and Support Alliance
In 2021 the Government announced long-awaited social care reforms. While some progress has been made, these reforms do not address some of the fundamental problems in social care – those of access, quality and workforce.
Too many families affected by dementia are struggling to access limited or inadequate services. Families are trying to fill the gaps in services themselves, with little support for their own needs.
The Government promised to fix social care – but care isn’t fixed yet.
What we are doing
Dementia UK is part of the Care and Support Alliance(CSA)which represent over 70 of Britain’s leading charities campaigning alongside the millions of older people, disabled people and their carers who deserve decent care.
We will be working with the CSA Alliance to highlight the challenges that people are facing and the change that is needed.
You can help by sharing with us your own experiences of social care. By sharing your story and highlighting the urgent need for improved dementia care and support, you can help us put pressure on the government and local decision-makers to improve life for families affected by dementia.
Our own income has been affected massively as I had to become carer to both my mother-in-law and my dad whilst also being a wife and mother. There’s been no financial support for us either as my husband works so we don’t qualify for any benefits
