We are in the middle of a social care crisis. The social care sector is not being funded adequately, much needed day centres are being closed and families are going without the help and support they need. Families are being made to wait until they hit crisis point before help is offered. The support that is available isn't shared with families by professionals which is leaving families struggling. Families and the vulnerable aren't given enough support with forms meaning there are disabled and vulnerable people in poverty as they don't know how to access for financial support they are entitled to. Carer's right now are only needing as little as 1 day's training to work with the vulnerable and disabled and are paid less than a shop worker or cleaner. This is something that really needs to change, carer's need to receive proper qualifications and training before working and they need to be paid a professional wage. This will benefit those they are caring for and the carer's themselves. Reform is needed throughout care which can be achieved by government. We need to force their hand. The elderly, the vulnerable, the disabled and their families need this. I have a disabled child myself and right now I dread the day I am no longer able to care for him as I would not want him to get lost in the current system. Families like mine need more, we need security.
