This is a recurring event: View all events in the series “Disability and Social Inclusion Seminars”
Speaker: Simon Bottery, Senior Fellow, Social Care, Kings Fund
Simon Bottery will cover the key trends in adult social care in England over the last decade.
He will draw on newly-released data for 2020/21, when Covid-19 was at its height, and explore the changes that the pandemic caused in demand, receipt and funding of adult social care.
The seminar will include a couple of puzzles that the data throws up and which aren’t yet explained.
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.
