Baroness Sally Greengross, Chief Executive of the International Longevity Centre – UK, said: “This is a crisis and we have got to get it right.”
Other organisations who co-signed the letter include BUPA Care Services, Counsel + Care, National Care Forum, Carers UK, ADASS, The Strategic Society Centre, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Age UK and the Local Government Association.
