On the steps of Downing Street, our new Prime Minister promised to “fix the crisis in social care once and for all”.
With the Prime Minister forming his plans for social care now, Independent Age, the older people’s charity, have launched a petition calling for the introduction of free personal care.
Earlier in the year, we heard from Independent Age about their call for free personal care. They believe that all older people should have the support they need with essential activities like washing, getting dressed and preparing a meal. Free personal care would make this a reality and mean that people no longer had to worry about the costs of personal care mounting up.
Sign their petition today and show the new Prime Minister that free personal care must be introduced as soon as possible – it’s really easy and only takes 2 minutes!
