Owning our care: Investigating the development of multi-stakeholder co-operative social care in the UK

This report states that no overhaul of the funding for care will be sufficient unless there is also a simultaneous shift in our approach to providing care and wellbeing, it deals with some of the practicalities of how that shift could occur.

It focuses on research into the development of 4 care and wellbeing organisations that are striving to empower service users, practitioners and communities through ownership and control.

This research is a collaborative effort, conducted by the Co-operative College and Change AGEnts and commissioned by Co-operatives UK, East of England Co-operative and the Wales Co-operative Centre, following initial work by the Co-operative Care Forum (CCF).
