Berkshire Care Association is the voice of Adult Social Care Providers in Berkshire. We believe passionately that Adult Social Care providers play a vital role in supporting individuals and their families at the some of the most difficult times of their lives. We support our members to deliver the highest possible standards of care and support by the sharing of knowledge, skills, and best practice. In addition to this we are the voice of care providers in Berkshire and as such we work with our statutory and non-statutory partners across the health and social care sector to ensure that the voice of care providers is heard.

 

Today we are loving social care.

We have written to all local MPs and Adult Social Care portfolio holders to ask them the same.

Social Care funding requires an urgent review: long term funding is needed.
