Care Campaign for the Vulnerable invited to attend the special preview screening of BBC Panorama - Crisis In Care

CARE CAMPAIGN FOR THE VULNERABLE INVITED TO THE SPECIAL PREVIEW SCREENING OF BBC PANORAMA CRISIS IN CARE

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was invited to a special preview screening at BBC London Radio Theatre to see BBC Panorama Crisis In Care... Who Cares?. It follows the deepening crisis in Adult Social Care in one local authority over 10 months – Somerset County Council. Nearly half of Somerset’s annual budget is spent on Adult Social Care. Last summer it was on the brink of going bust. Rogan Productions together with BBC Social Affairs Correspondent, Alison Holt, were granted exclusive access to see first-hand the difficulties faced by Somerset’s Director of Adult Social Services, his team of social workers and local politicians. The programmes showed the impact of the financial squeeze on vulnerable people in Somerset and the harsh truth of what that means for those needing care. From a young mother with severe arthritis, desperate for more help, to a 60-year-old man with learning disabilities who needs expensive, specialised support. What happens when the council closes a dementia day centre? It means a daughter now worries about where her elderly mother goes for care. These and other personal stories were at the heart of both programmes.


The screening was followed by a panel discussion hosted by reporter Alison Holt and a drinks reception. Guest speakers were- Sir Andrew Dilnot, who chaired the Commission on Funding of Care and Support, Stephen Chandler, Director, Adult Social Service, Somerset County Council and a family in care who appeared on the hour long programme.

The two episodes of CRISIS IN CARE: ‘Who Cares?’ & ‘Who Pays?’ are due for transmission on BBC One on Wednesday 29th May and Wednesday 5th June.

British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.

I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
