What are the stories of promise?

This collection charts the multitude of creative responses that have evolved to support people with adult care and support in  communities across England as a result of the pandemic.

Some of these 'stories of promise' might be for the short term. Many others we anticipate will be sustainble for the longer term.

They should help create a living legacy that inspires and informs commissioners, providers and voluntary sector organisations as we positively respond to the new realities brought about by the pandemic.
