The International Longevity Centre – UK has joined forces with a number of organisations to send an open letter to the leaders of the three main parties, urging them to address the care “crisis” in the UK without delay.

The letter calls on all parties to respond to the upcoming recommendations of the Dilnot Commission with a measured debate in order to build a shared, cross-partisan approach to the future of care in this country. 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.

A report of this letter can be found on the Telegraph website.
