Ralph Broad sets out the case for changing the whole approach of the social care system in England and Wales. He argues that the current system waits for crises and then responds with services. This is wasteful and damaging to our communities. It would be smarter to learn from the model of Local Area Coordination, first developed by Eddie Bartnik in Western Australia, which uses local government employed professionals to work directly to support people in their own communities.
