Putting social care on a sustainable footing is one of the biggest long-term challenges facing society.
The UK needs a long-term solution that will stand the test of time, and so we are committed to an ambitious three-point plan:
The Government needs to modernise the Mental Health Act to ensure people have greater control over their treatment and receive the dignity and respect they deserve.
People subject to the Act will receive better care and have a much greater say in that care.
