In the next year Parliament will be introducing a Social Care Bill that will see big changes to the way social care is provided in the UK it is important that every one has their say. Whether you recive social care services, provide care for a family member or work in the social care sector your views could help to shape the future of care.
At the start of his campaign David Ward said "As an MP, I meet many people who have experienced the care and support services. Some people receive good service, some poor, but the one thing all agree on is that it can be improved. I need your help to do that"
On Thursday 10th January, David Ward MP worked with Bradford Alliance on Community Care (BACC) to organise a meeting to discuss the effects of the Social Care White Paper and how it will affect those that are in care or are carers in Bradford.
On Tuesday 26th February David Ward published his report into Social Care in Bradford and how it will affect carers and those in care. You can read the full text by clicking on the link above.
"The thing that I am most proud of is that this research was a real joint effort with fantastic local contributions. It was crucial that Bradfordians were aware of the social care reforms but more importantly that they had an opportunity to contribute to the legislation with the voices and views of Bradford East being heard at the centre of this process".
