Archbishops’ Commission on Reimagining Care proposes set of values to inform vision for care and support in England

Today marks the start of a formal period of Listening and Engagement which will run until Friday 10 December. The Commission wants to hear from a wide range of individuals and organisations and ensure that its work is shaped by the views and voices of people and organisations who have experience of care and care giving.

They are calling for contributions from:

  • Those who draw on formal services
  • Unpaid carers, and the relatives and friends of those who draw on care and support
  • Those who work in the care sector and the voluntary and community sector
  • Churches of all denominations and other faith communities
  • Those who commission, provide and regulate formal services
  • Community groups and people who provide informal support

The consultation launched today aims to gather views about the challenges experienced by those currently drawing on care and support and those who work in the sector.

They are also interested in identifying examples of good practice.

The Commission is particularly interested in the role that communities play in supporting people with disability and in later life to live well, in particular the role of church and other faith communities.
