Co-operative approaches to wellbeing (position paper)

Type: Co-operatives UK documents  |  Topic: About co-operatives  |  Format: Report

The long-awaited and repeatedly delayed Green Paper on social care for older people and “parallel process” for care and wellbeing support for working age adults are now scheduled for publication in autumn 2018.

This paper sets out a co-operative position on the issues that we know will be covered in these reviews, making the case for what we call ‘co-operative approaches to care’ and setting out how public policy could create an environment for these approaches to flourish.  

We encourage everyone who thinks the wellbeing economy should share agency, ownership and control through networks of solidarity and reciprocity, to respond to the government’s coming consultations. Please use this paper as a resource if you find it useful to do so.
