PRESS RELEASE

16th November 2017

Green Paper on social care moved to Summer 2018

The First Secretary of State and Minister for the Cabinet Office, The Rt Hon Damian Green MP, has announced the Government will delay the consultation about care for older people until summer 2018. This is the second time ministers have moved the timetable for a full consultation on one of the most significant issues facing the British public.

In his statement, Damian Green, confirmed further detail around the scope of the consultation and the process the Government will carry out to consult widely upon dealing with the challenges flowing from our ageing population. This includes a commitment to work with independent experts to help shape long-term reforms. It is his ambition to build on previous announcements about funding to meet social care needs and attempts to reduce pressures on NHS services and social care providers.

Joel Charles, Deputy Chief Executive of Future Care Capital, said:

“Whilst we welcome the Government’s commitment to publishing a social care Green Paper that will look at the long-term challenges faced by users and providers of care services alike, this is the second time the consultation has been moved. It could also indicate that the Chancellor’s forthcoming Budget will not address widespread concerns about social care services under increasing strain. It is within everybody’s best interests that the consultation begins as soon as possible.”

About Future Care Capital (FCC)

FCC is a charity, emerging from the sale of the awarding organisation, the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education (CACHE), in September 2015.

Beginning life as the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) in 1945, the charity has evolved throughout its 70-year history and continues to have Her Majesty the Queen as its Royal Patron.

Following the sale of its awarding organisation business and assets (including the CACHE and NNEB brands) the charity has now embarked on its next chapter.

The Trustees have developed a detailed strategy for the future direction of the charity and have recently approved a 10-year business plan. The Trustees have identified the following vision, goals and aspirations that follow on from the Charity’s objects:

Charitable Objects: To promote education, training, quality and standards in care, health and education and allied disciplines.

Vision Statement: The charity will be known for being the leading independent voice for applying evidence that will advocate for and deliver a step change in health and care, including the advancement of quality and standards as well as education and training for allied professions as a sustainable charity.

Mission: Engage, educate and involve all generations in the development and delivery of unified health and care provision.

Key Beneficiaries: Those in receipt of care.

Key Goals and Aspirations:

  • Be recognised as a leading advocate and thought leader;
  • to deliver a step change in the advancement of quality and standards, education and training in care and health and allied professions; and
  • sustainably grow impact.

The charity has adopted an agile approach to delivery underpinned by an enabling internal culture and supporting systems that reflect its core values of empathy, diversity, openness and professionalism.

The charity’s core offerings are delivered through two collaborative but independent delivery vehicles:

Evidence based Advocacy – Developing new policy propositions and solutions supported by evidence-based research, stimulating debate and innovation through events, publications, projects and discussions with diverse stakeholders including the general public.

Innovation Investment Fund – In pursuance of FCC’s charitable mission, the charity will deploy its resources to identify and support innovation through the launch of a dedicated investment fund. The fund will invest in early stage technology based health and care entities with high societal benefit.

Legally structured as a charity, FCC intends to operate as a dynamic, agile and commercially aware organisation: a true social enterprise.
