Government White Paper
Caring for our future: reforming care and support
Paul Davies
Executive Director
Social Care & Inclusion
INTRODUCTION
• The Department has published the ‘Caring for
our future: reforming care and support’ White
Paper, which sets out the vision for a reformed
care and support system
• The new system will promote wellbeing and
independence at all stages to reduce the risk of
people reaching a crisis point, and so improve
their lives focus on people’s wellbeing and
support them to stay independent for as long as
possible
www.walsall.gov.uk
CASE FOR CHANGE
• The White Paper clearly states that the care and
support system in England today is not fit for
purpose as it does not support people to stay as
independent as possible, or empower them to
take control of their lives, and so cannot respond
effectively to increasing pressures over the
coming years from a growing and ageing
population
www.walsall.gov.uk
VISION
• Promote people’s independence and
wellbeing by enabling them to prevent or
postpone the need for care and support
• Transform the system to put people’s
needs, goals and aspirations at the centre
of care and support
• Supporting people to make their own
decisions, to realise their potential, and to
pursue life opportunities
www.walsall.gov.uk
VISION
• The vision will mean for people who use
services and for families:
 “I am supported to maintain my independence for as
long as possible”
 “I understand how care and support works, and what
my entitlements and responsibilities are”
 “I am happy with the quality of my care and support”
 “I know that the person giving me care and support
will treat me with dignity and respect”
www.walsall.gov.uk

KEY THEMES
• The health, wellbeing, independence and rights
of individuals are at the heart of care and
support
• People are treated with dignity and respect, and
are safe from abuse and neglect
• Personalisation is achieved when a person has
real choice and control over the care and
support they need to achieve their goals, to live
a fulfilling life, and to be connected with society
www.walsall.gov.uk
KEY THEMES
• The skills, resources and networks in every
community are harnessed and strengthened to
support people to live well, and to contribute to
their communities where they can and wish to
• Carers are recognised for their contribution to
society as vital partners in care, and are
supported to reach their full potential
• A caring, skilled and valued workforce that
delivers quality care and support,in partnership
with individuals, families and communities
www.walsall.gov.uk
THE FINANCIAL CONTEXT
• In the 2010 Spending Review the Government
allocated an additional £7.2 billion up to
2014/15 to support adult social care
• The reforms will deliver a re-engineered care
and support system that shifts resources
towards prevention and early intervention
• The paper clearly states that it is not intended
to set out a funding settlement for care and
support in future years
www.walsall.gov.uk
OVERVIEW – DRAFT CARE AND SUPPORT BILL
The draft Bill:
• Follows on from the white paper ‘Caring for
our future: reforming care and support’
• Sets out how the vision set out in the White
Paper is to be delivered
• Takes forward the recommendations of the
Law Commission report on adult social care
www.walsall.gov.uk
THE AIMS OF THE DRAFT BILL
• Modernise care and support law so that the system is
built around people’s needs and what they want to
achieve in their lives
• Clarify entitlements to care and support to give people a
better understanding of what is on offer
• Support the broader needs of local communities as a
whole, by giving them access to information and advice,
and promoting prevention and earlier intervention to
reduce dependency, rather than just meeting existing
needs
www.walsall.gov.uk
THE AIMS OF THE DRAFT BILL
• Simplify the care and support system and
processes to provide the freedom and flexibility
needed by local authorities and care
professionals to innovate and achieve better
results for people
• Consolidate existing legislation, replacing laws
that date back to the 1940s, with a single, clear
statute
• Supported by new regulations and a single bank
of statutory guidance
www.walsall.gov.uk
22
THE BILL INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING PROVISION
• New statutory principles which embed the promotion of
individual wellbeing as the driving force underpinning the
provision of care and support
• Population-level duties on local authorities to provide
information and advice, prevention services, and shape the
market for care and support services
• Clear legal entitlements to care and support, including
giving carers a right to support for the first time to put them
on the same footing as the people for whom they care
www.walsall.gov.uk
23
THE BILL INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING PROVISION
• Set out in law that everyone, including carers, should
have a personal budget as part of their care and support
plan, and give people the right to ask for this to be made
as a direct payment
• New duties to ensure that no-one’s care and support is
interrupted when they move home from one local
authority area to another
• A new statutory framework for adult safeguarding, setting
out the responsibilities of local authorities and their
partners, and creating Safeguarding Adults Boards in
every area
