July 2012 – Presentation – Summit on Care and Support White Paper

Our system of care and support, developed in a piecemeal fashion over more than six decades, is broken and in desperate need for reform

•Two core principles:

–we should do everything we can to prevent, postpone and minimise people’s need for formal care and support. Care and support should not just be about making people comfortable but about helping them to fulfil their potential
–that people should be in control of their own care and support
