Owning Our Care

Politicians are committed to overhauling how we fund adult social care. But it is not all about money. No overhaul of the funding for care will be sufficient unless there is also a simultaneous shift in our approach to providing care and wellbeing. This report deals with some of the practicalities of how that shift could occur. This is the output of primary research into the development of four care and wellbeing organisations that are striving to empower service users, practitioners and communities through ownership and control. These organisations aim to exemplify in different ways co-operative approaches to care and wellbeing.

The research charts current activity, capture the challenges to development that participants encountered and to identify interventions which could make the success of this approach more likely.
