Speaker: Simon Bottery, Senior Fellow, Social Care, The King’s Fund
How many people receive adult social care services in England, who pays for them and providers them – and are they any good? This presentation will look at the key trends in access, expenditure, workforce and quality across adult social care, the possible explanations for them and what they tell us about the state of the sector.
Before joining The King’s Fund in September 2017, Simon spent almost 10 years as Director of Policy at the older people’s charity Independent Age, researching and campaigning on issues including care home quality, unmet needs for care, social care funding and the social care workforce. He was vice-chair of the Care and Support Alliance in 2017.
Simon has wide experience in policy, communications and journalism, including as Director of Communications at Citizens Advice. He has also worked for ActionAid, in the commercial sector for Guinness and in BBC local radio.
