Social Care

The UK is currently in a care crisis and there are several issues within care that Tracey is campaigning on. The first among these is improving the quality of care. Unfortunately in recent years we have seen some awful examples of care exposed. Tracey wants to see improved regulation of social care providers as well as better training and pay for social care workers to improve job satisfaction, while ensuring we get the right people into the job. The second issue is social care funding. Tracey is in favour of the new cap that will be introduced in the Care Bill. Although she would like to see the cap at a lower level, Tracey is pleased that people will now be in a position to plan for their care and believes it is now the job of the insurance industry to create suitable products for this need.
