Key to Care: Report of the Burstow Commission on the Future of the Home Care Workforce

Local Government Information Unit, 2 December 2014

The Burstow Commission was formed to look into the state of home care, the level of workforce currently in place and what needs to change in order to ensure that home care is safe and efficient in the future.  This report outlines clear recommendations on what needs to change to have a professional, well-paid, well-trained and properly regulated workforce who can provide the quality of care at home that people need. But it also recognises the complex nature of social care and the interrelatedness of problems and solutions. It features the stories of care workers, in their own words, who powerfully speak on both what needs to change and what could be the future of care.
