There is a 38% petition which asks the Prime Minister Theresa May to:

– Make sure everyone has access to the care they need.

– Provide secure, long term funding to deliver the care people need (recent studies say this should be a minimum increase of 3.9% in spending a year).

– Develop a long-term plan for social care that encompasses a workforce strategy and a diverse and stable market of providers to cater for everyone’s needs.

– Make sure people get good quality, trusted information and advice.
