Tomorrow sees the publication of the Dilnot Commission’s report into the funding of care and support – a significant policy development for anyone interested in social care for people of all ages.
Discussion on Twitter has used the #dilnot hashtag for people’s thoughts and to share links/information regarding the Commission. ( also #carecrisis and #socialcare)
People on Twitter have built networks and will be interested in the many responses that will be published by individuals/groups/charities etc. For many time will be limited.
Therefore after a discussion among a few people who host highly respected blogs, it was agreed that ArbitraryConstant (aka Rich Watt) would offer space, so a frank and open discussion could take place by anyone interested in social care issues.
With many thanks to @rich_w, @monstertalk and @jrfemma for their willingness to try this.
So once you have read the Dilnot report, if you want to discuss the details, please join in with the discussion here
