Our headline news this week is our Thursday webinar with guests live streamed from Australia, including former head of TLAP Dr Sam Bennett.

Book now and find out about social care reform down under and if it's time the UK started taxing for social care. 

Natasha Burberry explains how Covid-19 is bringing out the best in people and offers a tip sheet of practical actions.

Look at our latest stories of promise that cover the themes of digital, workforce and information provision in response to the pandemic.

We welcome more organisations getting involved with Making it Real. Sunderland City Council are using it to help them refresh their carers strategy in response to the social isolation many have reported due to Covid.

Affinity Trust are using Making it Real to support their Individual Service Fund (ISF) offer. Check out Paula Integrated Care Limited and the Envivo Group who have also committed to using the framework. 

This report, from LGA & ADASS with Oxford Brookes University, comes at a time when the health and social care sector has been calling on the government  to address the long-term funding and reform of adult social care.

TLAP and NCAG colleagues were pleased to see that Making it Real themes were used to articulate what co-produced, personalised and community-based support looks like.
