Practical Approaches to improving lives of disabled and older people through building stronger communities
Authors Catherine Wilton and Martin Routledge.
This paper gives practical advice and examples on improving the lives of disabled and older people through building stronger communities. Social care transformation is not limited to personal budgets or even to public services targeted at people eligible for state support. It is also about how people help themselves and each other as individuals, in groups and communities and how they make best use of the resources available for all citizens in their area. This briefing sets out the arguments for building strong and resilient communities, including new evidence that it can save money.
