CSCI publishes report on state of social care


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

Immediately after this issue of Caring Times went to press, the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) was scheduled to release its “state of the nation” report on social care. Using data held by the Commission the report is said by the CSCI to paint “a fascinating and sometimes worrying picture of social care in England in 2004-2005”. The report is believed to highlight that social care services are struggling to meet people1s needs, and that the targeting of resources on people with the highest levels of need means that fewer people are receiving the care they need to enable them to live independent lives in their own homes. It is all so understood that the report will say there are continuing and chronic difficulties in recruitment and retention of staff throughout the whole care sector and that support is urgently needed for the five million unpaid carers.
