a co-operative vision for social care

Our care system is designed to look after our parents, grandparents, siblings and friends in some of their most vulnerable moments. But whether it's 5 minute care visits or poverty pay, privatised social care is in crisis.

There's a better way. 

In Taking Care, our latest Report, we argue that ownership by care workers and care recipients is key to tackling the growing crisis in social care. We believe it's time for social care co-operatives – owned by their staff and social users – to take the place of private providers.
