CIRCLE Director Sue Yeandle was at the House of Commons to address the All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Science and Policy as a guest speaker on 7 February 2018. Sue spoke on Sustainable Care: sustainability and wellbeing in our care systems (PDF, 341Kb) and answered questions on this topic posed by MPs, Members of the House of Lords and parliamentary staff and advisers. This was a packed Westminster event, at which other guest speakers were Simon Bottery from the King’s Fund and Ruthe Isden from national charity Age UK. It was a valuable forum for sharing ideas about what needs to change in the UK’s arrangements for older and disabled people who need care and support.
