Ann Marie Gray, Professor of Social Policy, presents as part of the Civic Lecture Series her Inaugural Professorial Lecture

Across the UK, social care systems have been described as being in crisis with growing demand, increasing levels of unmet need, concerns about quality and standards and decline in public faith.   Much of the blame for this has been directed at resent austerity.  However, the problems with the social care system are deeper, rooted in its history and evolution and lack of public visibility. While the NHS is one of our most valued institutions, social care has had little public salience.  This lecture looks at the challenges facing the social care service and at potential policy solutions. Why do we fund social care differently from the NHS? How much do we value social care and how much would we be prepared to pay for it? And, is it possible to build a new public consensus on social care?
