Charity plans changes

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

National charity Counsel and Care says it will soon unveil a new corporate identity as part of its work to reach more older people, their families and carers and to influence the future funding of care and support for older people. In September the charity plans to publish results from a national survey of local authorities’ care charging and eligibility criteria. In October Counsel and Care will also release a policy paper on the funding of long term care. The charity also plans to expand its advice service for older people, their families and carers, publishing new factsheets and a newsletter – Generations – and launch new website as it unveils its new corporate identity. On September 7, Stephen Byers is scheduled to deliver Counsel and Care’s annual Graham Lecture on “Older people: why a new agenda is a political priority”. In November, Counsel and Care will hold a national conference on the value of early intervention in older people’s services, themed “Cutting Costs or Cutting Corners?”
