Room: Plenary

As we set to rebuild community care beyond Covid, it is possible to get value for money when investing in community care? Do we need to rethink the financing of community care? In this context how, and to what extent private and third sector providers may join for a mixed economy of care is a critical question. Care financing is directly linked to questions around the sustainability and management of social services now and in the future, including planning and budgeting, contracting and procurement.
