Strength-based approaches in the Care Bill

In Control, alongside partner organisations, has published a new briefing paper to analyse the changes made to the Care Bill which intend to introduce strengths-based or asset-based approaches into social care.

The paper which has been produced by In Control, Shared Lives Plus, inclusive neighbourhoods, Inclusion North, Community Catalysts and Partners in Policymaking considers the opportunities and risks which strength and asset-based approaches present.

The briefing concludes that these changes are on balance positive for people who use services and family carers and sets out the case for MPs and peers supporting their retention. It builds on the partners' publications over the last couple of years, including Reforming the Front End of Social Care and our published briefing on the Draft Bill.

The paper can be downloaded below.
