Sustainable Care: connecting people and systems

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sheffield
Department Name: Sociological Studies

Abstract

Our programme focuses on the care needs of adults living at home with chronic health problems or disabilities, and seeks sustainable solutions to the UK's contemporary 'crisis of care'. It is distinctive in investigating sustainability and wellbeing in care holistically across care systems, work and relationships; addresses disconnection between theorisations of care in different disciplines; and locates all its research in the context of international scholarship, actively engaging with policy partners.

It will fill knowledge gaps, contribute new theoretical ideas and data analyses, and provide useful, accurate evidence to inform care planning, provision and experience. It develops and critically engages with policy and theoretical debates about: care infrastructure (systems, networks, partnerships, standards); divisions of caring labour/the political economy of care (inequalities, exploitation); care ethics, rights, recognition and values (frameworks, standards, entitlements, wellbeing outcomes); care technologies and human-technological interactions; and care relations in emotional, familial, community and intergenerational context.

Our team comprises 20 scholars in 7 universities, linked to an international network spanning 15 countries. Our programme comprises integrative activities, in which the whole team works together to develop a new conceptual framework on sustainable care and wellbeing, and two Work Strands, each with 4 linked projects, on 'Care Systems' & 'Care Work & Relationships'.

'Care Systems' will: (i) study prospects, developments and differentiation in the four care systems operating in England, N. Ireland, Scotland & Wales, comparing their approaches to markets, privatisation and reliance on unpaid care; (ii) model costs and contributions in care, covering those of carers and employers as well as public spending on care; (iii) assess the potential of emerging technologies to enhance care system sustainability; and (iv) analyse, in a dynamic policy context, migrant care workers' role in the sustainability of homecare.

'Care Work & Relationships' will: (i) develop case studies of emerging homecare models, and assess their implications for sustainable wellbeing; (ii) focus on carers who combine employment with unpaid care, filling gaps in knowledge about the effectiveness of workplace support and what care leave and workplace standard schemes can contribute to sustainable care arrangements; (iii) explore how care technologies can be integrated to support working carers, ensuring wellbeing outcomes across caring networks; and (iv) investigate care 'in' and 'out of' place, as systems adapt or come under pressure associated with population diversity and mobility.

Each project will collaborate with our international partners. These scholars, in 26 collaborating institutions, will ensure we learn from others about ways of understanding, measuring or interpreting developments in how care is organised and experienced, and keep up to date with latest research and scholarship.

Our capacity-building strategy will build future scholarly expertise in the study of sustainability and wellbeing in care, and ensure our concepts, methods, and research findings achieve international standards of excellence. Universities in our partnership are contributing 5 UK & 12 overseas PhD studentships, enabling us to form an international early career scholar network on sustainable care, supported by our senior team and partners.

Our impact strategy, led by Carers UK, involves leading UK and international policy partners. Informing policy, practice and debate, we will co-produce analyses and guidance, enhance data quality, promote good practice and engage decision-makers, policymakers, practitioners in the public, private and voluntary sectors, carers, people with care needs, and the media. Our Advisory Board of leading academics, policy/practice figures and opinion formers will guide all our work.

Planned Impact

Our mission is to develop and promote a deeper appreciation and implementation of sustainable care, providing lasting economic and societal benefits in care and caring and establishing human wellbeing principles across health and social care systems. We can no longer afford a fragmented set of systems and services, or care workforces that are undervalued or invisible. Our impact strategy aims to embed these findings and principles across systems, and for the people who contribute to, and should benefit from, them. 'Sustainable care' must become part of national and international narratives about responding to pressures in care systems, work & relationships.
We have built our team with impact as a central focus. Our longstanding collaboration with Carers UK has supported us in conceptualising our approach. Letters from other policy/practice partners testify to their willingness to develop coordinated messages about sustainable care aimed at making a difference at macro and micro levels. Key stakeholders have pledged to use their influence within care structures to shape and change how policymakers, decision-makers, regulatory and advisory bodies, users of care and carers, and providers of care services, act, relate to one another, organise and plan their work, re-shaping arrangements for rising care needs in a changing world. They include Care England & Unison, representing independent care providers and care workers; Telecare Services Assoc., Digital Health & Care Alliance & DHealth, offering leadership on technology and care, and Carers Resource & CIPD, leaders on work/care policy and practice for carers and HR professionals.
We are thus well positioned to influence all levels of care. At the level of systems we will use our evidence to shape future policy and practice in the UK and internationally on how care is organised, delivered, monitored and funded; how care systems are supported by families, migrant workers and care technologies; how flexibilities in employment arrangements affect care systems; and how systems can be reconfigured to meet the needs of mobile and diverse populations. By developing the leading framework for policy and practice in care and caring, we will keep the sustainability of systems and wellbeing of people at the forefront, shaping development of national guidelines with new indicators of sustainability and wellbeing to inform priorities in use of economic and human resources. Committed partners the WHO, Eurocarers, AGEWELL, CSA Group, IACO and the Swedish Care Competence Centre, with our Advisory Board, chaired by Eurofound's Robert Anderson, and with an influential membership (local government, EHRC, TUC), will help us meet this goal.
At the levels of care work and relationships, we will improve how care providers, carers, employers and people who need/receive care, experience the everyday realities of care and caring. Partners CIPD, TUC, Employers for Carers and CSA Group have pledged to work with us to change practice, disseminate messages and improve the quality of life of those who provide and receive care. Together we will influence national and international debates on paid care leave, deliver a framework for new workplace standards and establish indicators to measure the impact of workplace support for carers. Unison will engage with us to develop guidance on sustainable innovations in homecare and best practice in deployment of migrant care workers. Partners DHealth, Digital Health & Care Alliance and AGEWELL will help us influence the design, uptake and use of innovative care technologies in the UK and beyond.
We are privileged to have Madeleine Starr MBE of Carers UK as Director of Impact. Through her role our findings will feed directly into Carers UK, leveraging its proven ability to influence change at local, national & international legislative and policy levels, collaborate across a wide range of stakeholders, and engage with, consult and speak for the UK's 6.5m carers.

Description Generated new knowledge about care systems, care work and care relationships. Highlights include:
• Comparative study of care systems in England, N. Ireland, Scotland & Wales, since devolution.
• Ground-breaking statistical analyses of carers' circumstances, including the effects of Covid-19.
• Case studies of use of technologies in care in English local authorities.
• Care workforce challenges, especially as these relate to changes in migration policy
• Case studies of innovations in home care delivery, some operationalising policies designed to retain staff
• A first representative study of working carers, revealing the importance of workplace support for carers
• Rich accounts of older migrants' experience of needing/providing care, as 'Brits in Spain' and in the UK, and of the transnational caring networks of care workers with Irish, Polish and Zimbabwean heritage.

Developed conceptual thinking relevant to adult social care in the UK
We progressed care theorising, by exploring how wellbeing outcomes can be achieved for care users, their families / carers and care workers. We produced a framework for understanding sustainability in the formal and family care sectors with three components: "what a person has (material), what they can do through their relationships with others (relational); how they feel and evaluate what they have and can do (subjective). We theorise wellbeing in care as having sufficient economic resources, good social connections, and being able to lead the life you wish to lead.

Established a major new collaboration on statistical data relevant to care
Following its participation in a SCP Round Table, the team established regular contact with the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which evolved into an ongoing collaboration with its new Social Care team, leading to 5 collaborative PhD studentships with the Midlands Doctoral Training Centre and ESRC Data Analytics & Society Centre for Doctoral Training, now being taken forward in the ESRC Centre for Care.

Built new capacity and successful proposals in the field of social care
We developed new scholarly expertise in impactful study of sustainability and wellbeing in care:
• In 2017, the team won 3 UKRI Innovation Fellowships, each linked to a SCP teams and supported to make connections with industry partners. This has set all three on career paths that draw on their skills.
• In 2019, we collaborated on a successful bid to the ESRC / Health Foundation to develop the UK's new Adult Social Care Evidence Implementation Centre (IMPACT). Led by team members Glasby and Yeandle, we pooled ideas and care sector contacts to build a new £15m centre that is collaborating with people at the 'front line' of care to translate evidence into practice.
• In 2020, team members bid successfully for ESRC Centres funding. We shaped a new Centre for Care partnership (five universities plus ONS, Carers UK, National Children's Bureau, Social Care Institute for Excellence), with a wider remit and new agenda for impact, co-production, career development, capacity building and data infrastructure development. Commencing 2021, this will develop the careers of twelve researchers and a similar number of PhD students.
Exploitation Route Outcomes will be taken forward by:
a) Teams working with care sector partners: IMPACT - Health Foundation/ESRC ASC Evidence Centre will use our findings to guide their activities; ESRC Centre for Care (comprising some members of our team for this award, plus others) has a wider remit and was designed to build on the 2017-21 programme.
b) ONS and other Government Departments are operationalising plans for relevant collaborations, including to enable ONS, DWP, BEIS and DHSC to run a new Survey of Carers.
c) UK governments: all UK administrations and local governments are involved in ASC reforms. Our outcomes offer data / evidence to inform these plans and the work of policymakers and resource planners UK-wide.
d) The evidence base we produced is highly relevant to care sector employers, and valued by many organisations in the technology sector, trade unions and professional bodies.
e) Charities advocating for carers, older/disabled people and care workers are already using our output. Carers UK and Care Workers Charity are using our work to develop collaborative PhD studentships.
f) Other academic teams are drawing on our output to develop new studies and publications, and approaching us to learn from the impactful policy engagement we have demonstrated.

Description Impact on policy and practice Soon after funding began, we held a series of 'Contact Events' with adult social care (ASC) stakeholders in England, Wales, Scotland & N Ireland, supported by charity partner Carers UK's offices in London, Cardiff, Belfast and Glasgow. We used these events to build interest and engagement with our research and to identify policy agendas in ASC in all four nations of the UK. The contacts made were important in shaping the analysis of ASC policy and practice following devolution (led by Co-I Needham). Following this, we organised a series of 'Re-Imagining Care' round tables, in London and other venues, with care sector and other relevant experts and stakeholders. This produced a series of 'Policy Perspectives' briefings (see our website) summarising the viewpoints, aspirations and research questions of policy and practice partners on our core research topics. This process set the stage for our research over the following three years, involved extensive ongoing collaboration with partners, and to input by Investigators and others in the research team to the many policy agendas relevant to ASC that emerged between 2018 and 2021, including (unexpectedly) exploring some of the ways ASC was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020-21. The team made multiple contributions to policy debates, investigations and enquiries, based on our newly-collected research data, new analyses of existing datasets and expertise relevant to the widely discussed 'crisis of social care', as well as to other policy developments in social care, education, employment, migration and technology. Our Advisory Board, comprising senior individuals at the TUC, Equality & Human Rights Commission, Department for Work & Pensions, Eurocarers, Care England, Care Quality Commission and in local government, plus leading academics, provided us with regular guidance on emerging opportunities for impact and engagement. As our work produced published outputs (such as peer-reviewed journal articles and research reports) we developed an explicit impact and dissemination strategy with Co-Investigator Starr, (based at national charity Carers UK) and multiple other sector partners. Our aim was to ensure our findings were made available in accessible ways to non-academic audiences at national, international and local levels, to the public, and to academics in our broad multi-disciplinary field. The following paragraphs summarise how we fed our research evidence into policymaking and practice. Inevitably, some plans (e.g. for workshops, seminars and conferences) were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Wherever possible we replaced these with online activities and events. Expert advice to central government / engagement with ONS During the grant period, Investigators in our team gave advice on multiple occasions to the Government Office for Science and the Department for Health & Social Care (DHSC) on intelligence for the planned ASC Green Paper. This enabled us to influence aspects of the major legislation later introduced (2021) in the Health and Social Care Bill. During the award, we also: • gave verbal and written data and advice on ASC issues to the Cabinet Office and to the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS); • provided briefings (including recently collected research evidence) to the In-work Progression Enquiry led by Baroness McGregor-Smith for the Department for Work & Pensions; • advised the Director of Labour Market Enforcement; • responded to the Consultation on Carer's Leave led by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, providing latest detailed evidence based on our international comparative research; and • provided concise but detailed information based on our research to the 'Social care: funding and workforce' Enquiry undertaken by the House of Commons Health & Social Care Committee. Our responses to the above official consultations can be found on our website. In autumn 2020, PI Yeandle also participated in the Carers Advisory Group (part of the ASC Covid-19 Task Force established by the DHSC, bringing intelligence from our research into discussions to inform advice on how carers' support should be organised as the UK entered the Covid-19 pandemic's 'winter pressures' phase. Much advice made by the Group was accepted and implemented by DHSC. During 2018 we built a new research-focused relationship with the Office for National Statistics (ONS). This evolved productively over the ensuing years of the award, leading to team members' regular engagement with the ONS Social Care team (which was established in 2020) and to five collaborative PhD studentships which ONS is now supporting financially, via short-term internships and by enabling access to data and resources. Informing the general public and civil society organisations Team members regularly contributed to seminars, roundtables and advisory groups, made TV/radio appearances and published in The Conversation, the Metro and ModernGov. Our evolving and extensive online presence enabled the team to engage with the public and with a wide range of care sector civil society organisations. This work was supported by our active and frequently updated website, by regular blogs with and by research team members and via our Twitter account. Our webpages feature: • our three Caring and COVID-19 reports; • our Care 'in' and 'out of' place team's dissemination report; • our series of Policy and Practice Briefs produced, in dialogue with sector partners • nineteen podcasts in three podcast series - on 'Care Matters', on 'Digital Care Futures' and on 'Sustainable Care and COVID'; • our digital exhibition 'I'll be Here in the Morning' developed for the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences. We have also released a wide range of video recordings of evidence-based research seminars, particularly after the COVI-19 outbreak halted 'in-person' activities in spring 2020, and developed infographics and short videos to inform the public on the importance of reporting their caring roles in the 2021 Census of England and Wales. Throughout, we worked closely with our non-academic Co-I Starr at Carers UK, who guided our impact strategy and supported the team to communicate findings from our studies to diverse audiences, making connections between our team and Carers UK's networks, including the employer-led organisation Employers for Carers, the TSA (Technology-enabled Services Association) and multiple developers and suppliers of care-relevant technologies. Beyond the UK, we convened large public-facing events and held productive research-led conversations with NGOs, government officials, private sector organisations and trade unions in Australia, Canada, Japan and Taiwan. These events were organised in collaboration with local bodies and charities, including the Canadian Homecare Association, Carers Japan, and Carers New South Wales. We used these opportunities, for which were awarded linked competitive ESRC funding, to share and debate our research, to develop new lines of enquiry and to progress joint publication plans, now bearing fruit via our Book Series contract with The Policy Press (see below). In late 2017, responding to an invitation from ESRC, our team developed an overarching business case on 'Positioning Care to Support Innovation, Growth and Upskilling'. This resulted in the award of three UKRI Innovation Fellowships (IFs) linked to our main award; these were developed with industrial partners in the home care and care technology sectors and with the business-led organisation Employers for Carers. Over their three years with the team: • IF Zimpel-Leal collaborated closely with innovative care organisations using platforms and other methods to improve the matching of care workers to clients, and contributed expert advice to guide and enhance their business modelling; • IF Lariviere built close relationships with tech providers - this enabled his work to influence their practice and improved their understanding of how users of care and support benefit from and are affected by specific technologies; • IF Cook worked closely with four employers in low-productivity industrial sectors and in regions with low GDP, producing bespoke company-level guidance on how each could support and retain workers with caring responsibilities and better understand the organisational benefits of these policies. Our main award funded the linked research teams that produced the new knowledge (highlighted above and reported elsewhere in our submission in more detail). Impacts of this new knowledge include: • Our analyses of carers' circumstances (led by Co-I Bennett) showed how the Covid-19 pandemic had affected their financial wellbeing and foodbank use, access to health services and employment. These findings were used extensively in campaigning by Carers UK, cited in parliamentary debates, and influenced Government's decision to make special provision for carers in its wider policy responses to Covid-19. • Our case studies of technology use in care by local authorities (led by Co-I Hamblin) have informed debate in the sector as it prepares for the 'digital switchover' and confronts unevenness and challenges in digital infrastructure. By providing examples of progress and risks in use of everyday technologies in care, and working closely with the TSA, this work continues to inform local authority decision-making and to contribute to public understanding of care. • Our research (led by Co-I Hussein) on how the care workforce was affected by Brexit and changes in UK migration policy was developed in close collaboration with key stakeholders. Findings were fed into debates about the value of and shortages in care work, and how these developments affected and challenged segments of the care sector. Our findings, made accessible to the public via podcasts and accessible reports, raised care sector and public awareness and informed national policy-making. • Our case studies of innovations in home care delivery (led by Co-I Burns) provided specific, detailed evidence of how some home care providers are operationalising policies designed to retain and support staff to deliver quality home care to clients. Results show the employment outcomes of these different models and were provided to the DWP In-work progression Enquiry. • In collaboration with the CIPD [the professional body for HR and people development] our team (led by Co-I Heyes) developed the first ever nationally representative study of working carers in England and Wales. This revealed the importance of workplace support for carers and its effect on employee wellbeing, intention to quit and retention. Findings were used widely by the CIPD and TUC to inform HR professionals and unions across the employment spectrum, contributing to growing awareness among employers and workers of this crucial issue. • Our team (led by Co-I Kilkey in collaboration with Co-I Hall) produced rich accounts of older UK citizens' experiences of needing and providing care in previously under-researched migration contexts. Within this, Hall's work on 'Brits in Spain' produced evidence of unmet need and distress in a study developed with Age UK España. Findings were shared with the British Embassy in Spain to inform its local work to support British citizens abroad. • Co-Is Glasby & Bennett led an analysis setting out projected care costs for England under various reform scenarios. Their paper reviewed what happened 2010-2019, explored the impact of the gap between need and funding and the relationship between future spending and economic growth. On publication, the paper contributed significantly to live debates on social care funding and was featured in The Guardian. Crucially, it identified a 'lost decade' in which policymakers failed to act on earlier warnings, showed how funding cuts had disproportionately affected older people, and called for urgent action before the care system becomes financially unsustainable. Academic impact The team's academic impact is already significant and will accelerate as our work is cited and built upon by others. Our peer-reviewed output to date includes 23 academic papers in key journals (reported elsewhere in our submission). The team has contracted a new book series with The Policy Press, with Investigators Glasby, Hamblin, Manthorpe and Yeandle as the Series Editors, with three books under contract and more anticipated. The team's large international network and engagement with scholars overseas is informing and influencing academic agendas in many other countries, including in Asia, Europe, North America and Australia, some of which have committed to ongoing collaboration as international partners in the new ESRC Centre for Care (2021-2026), which seven Co-Investigators in the team responsible for the award reported here are now involved in setting up. We have reported elsewhere the international conferences and events we have co-convened and the contributions team members have made at similar events set up by others including at major international scholarly gatherings. Our own international conference (planned as an event at the University of Sheffield in April 2020, but cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic) was re-planned and successfully delivered in 2021, as also reported in detail elsewhere in our submission, producing a substantial set of legacy outputs made available through our website, and growing interest in our team and its ongoing work. In 2023 key members of our team will be involved in delivering the 5th International Transforming Care conference, an important academic gathering in our field, organised every two years, and which we have been invited to host by the conference planning committee. Also reported elsewhere, we would note our academic impact through our Early Career Scholar International network, which has provided particular opportunities for engagement with PhD scholars, in many cases supporting them as they progress into their first academic posts; this network will also form a platform for our ongoing work in the new ESRC Centre for Care, whose funding was announced in autumn 2021.

We have implemented mobile logins and are looking at implementing electronic MAR charts which will help with accuracy and speedup required changes - we are currently beta testing this. Once this is implemented we are planning on looking at electronic log recording rather than the written logs and a family app will be available to allow family to see relevant entries as well. We also now have access to NHS emails after registering and updating the Data Security and Protection Toolkit which enable us to send secure emails - especially useful for contact with doctors / chemists etc. - but can also be used to send Careplan updates and information securely to non NHS mail users."

Title Achieving Sustainability in Care Systems: The Potential of Technology, 2020-2021 
Description Current social care systems face challenges to their sustainability due in part to population ageing and the changing nature of care needs. These have led to a mismatch between care supply and demand and more complexity, as many people, especially those over 75, experience co-morbid chronic conditions. Geography and population diversity also pose challenges for the design and delivery of social care. Familial networks of care are increasingly dispersed and complex, rural populations are ageing, and in some urban settings populations are very diverse. Rising numbers of older adults live alone (some experiencing loneliness, isolation and the associated, negative, impacts on their wellbeing and health) and a growing minority of older people have no children who could support them. At the same time, social care is underfunded and failing to keep pace with the escalating and changing nature of care demand, with some local authorities struggling to deliver wellbeing outcomes (both for those in need of care and their carers, as required in England's Care Act 2014). Some are also finding it challenging to contract with care providers able to deliver reliable services of good quality. Wider, more systematic use of technology in care at home, and advanced technologies in development, are often seen as offering promising solutions to these challenges, yet the place of technology as a source of future sustainability in the care system is far from clear. 'Achieving sustainability in care systems: the potential of technology' aims to: • Map the changing role of technologies within care systems in: a) planning/organisation of social care; b) delivery of social care through the support received by people living in their own homes; c) collection and communication of data between different parts of the care system, including its integration with health care. • Explore the potential role of technologies in developing sustainable care systems: a) using a future-oriented perspective and broad view of advances in technology; b) focusing on areas of promise for sustainability / wellbeing in care at home) using cross-national comparisons and stakeholder input to address issues of practical, attitudinal and ethical acceptability, and design and other requirements needed to embed technologies in care systems. 'Achieving sustainability in care systems: the potential of technology' is part of the Sustainable Care research programme.

Title Ageing in and Out of Place: Towards Sustainable Wellbeing in Diverse and Mobile Contexts, 2018-2019 
Description These data stem from the Sustainable Care Research Programme (2017-2021), which investigated how social care arrangements can be made sustainable. The main objective of the programme was to increase understanding of economically and socially sustainable care - especially how to achieve wellbeing for care users, their families/ carers and paid care workers. The Sustainable Care research programme was comprised of several Work Packages, one of them being Care 'In' and 'Out' of Place: towards sustainable wellbeing in mobile and diverse contexts. These data are from that specific Work Package. It aimed to examine migrants' experiences of care in and out of place, in order to develop understandings of sustainable wellbeing. It focused on two groups: ageing migrants in England and ageing British migrants in Spains.

Title Combining Work and Care- How Do Workplace Support and Technologies Contribute to Sustainable Care Arrangements, 2017-2021 
Description Family carers, central to sustainable care, are mostly of working age and employed full-time. Their rising numbers include many mobile workers. Incompatibility between family care and paid work is a known risk to sustainable care, but better evidence is needed of the support needed to promote wellbeing among working carers and those they support. This team's research on Combining Work and Care: How do workplace support and technologies contribute to sustainable care arrangements is designed to inform policy and practice on the planning and resourcing of care by generating new insights into sustainable care and wellbeing through comparison of developments in the UK and other countries. Previous UK research on this topic has mostly focused on flexible working arrangements and organisational case studies. Little is known about how care leave (on which the UK has not legislated) might be introduced, or about the voluntary initiatives already being implemented by employers. This research focused on under-researched aspects of the support needed to sustain the wellbeing of 'working carers': measurement of impact; the role and potential of schemes designed to improve workplace support; the impact and characteristics of statutory care leave in other countries and of their voluntary, employer-led, equivalents in the UK. The main research questions were: 1. What support do working carers need to fulfill both their work and caring responsibilities? What are their highest priorities for such support? 2. What constitutes good workplace support for carers in employment? How does it enhance carers' ability to integrate their paid employment and caring roles? 3. What is the impact of this support on carers, employers, care users and care workers? What are its costs and benefits for employers and for different types of employee? 4. What are the key features of established/emerging carer 'workplace standard', 'employer recognition' and 'benchmarking' schemes; what do they contribute to wellbeing and sustainability of care arrangements? 5. What are the characteristics, impact, uptake and outcomes of UK employers' voluntary care leave schemes, and of statutory paid care leave schemes in other countries? 6. What aspects of worker and carer roles are amenable to improved co-ordination of care; in what ways and how can technology enhance the quality of care relationships, or produce wellbeing outcomes? 7. Which (if any) available technologies do working carers use, and how (if at all) do they assemble or modify these to provide the support they need? 8. Can technological innovations offer improved support for working carers reduce stress/overload or disconnection/ fragmentation in caring situations?

Title Delivering Care at Home: Emerging Models and Their Implications for Sustainability and Wellbeing, 2018-2020 
Description Homecare is sometimes characterised by poor employment practices which hamper good care, leading to degrading work practices and high turnover. The sector faces rising demand / staff costs, reductions in public funding and rationing of care by LAs, with more people making private arrangements, often without support . Experts claim home care needs a 'relationship-centred approach', innovation including greater use of technology and skilled workers, yet the UK lags behind developments in other nations. Few studies have examined homecare provision and the social relations in which it is embedded. Specifically, how approaches to care, the use of technology and job design inter-relate in innovative provision and affect sustainable wellbeing, has not been adequately researched. This study contributes new knowledge by investigating the potential of innovative models of homecare to foster sustainable care relations, use technology and create job quality, by asking: What innovative home care models are emerging in different local and national UK contexts? What capacity do innovative home care models in the UK have to support sustainable wellbeing, and through which mechanisms is this achieved?

Results and Impact As the deadline for a final Brexit deal approaches, close attention is being paid to statistics on the number of EU citizens living in Britain. In late August, after the Office for National Statistics published its latest long-term international migration estimates, news reports continued to talk of a "Brexodus" - the exodus of EU citizens from the UK ahead of Brexit. But such commentary, which is mirrored in academic debate, is overblown and it's symptomatic of the assumptions made about how mobile the EU migrants who've made their homes in Britain actually are.

Results and Impact Blog by RA Hall, about his participation in a Demos roundtable with MP Danny Kruger to discuss the MP's recent letter to Secretary of State for Health & Social Care. In his letter, Kruger set out principles he believes should shape the design of a new system. Kruger favours adopting a German or Japanese-style social insurance system to inject the extra funding needed to expand support claims this would support the smallest scale of care first: through families, communities and small, flexible service delivery. Larger-scale state and market services would become the last resort. Hall critically engages with these proposals.

Results and Impact Blog entry by Co-I Needham highlighting work recently completed on care markets. Six months later, after sign-off procedures and development of accompanying resources, the project was published. Needham points out that those 6 months were the most traumatic and turbulent of any period in recent history as the Covid-19 pandemic swept through care homes, resulting in 30,500 excess deaths between 28 Dec 2019 and 19 Jun 2020. Domiciliary care had a greater proportional increase in excess deaths than care homes in this period. Thousands of people faced isolation and distress as day services closed and many older people were confined to their homes. She asked, Do any of the things we knew in February 2020 still hold true?

Results and Impact SC team engaged with Carer Positive, to discuss distinctive features, challenges in set up and operations and strengths and weaknesses of the approach. Our team introduced research questions and update on progress.

Carer Positive aims to encourage employers to create a supportive working environment for carers in the workplace. Supporting carers to manage the sometimes difficult job of balancing work with caring responsibilities can deliver real benefits to employers as well as helping individuals and their families. Unfortunately many carers give up work because the job of juggling their work and caring responsibilities simply becomes too much.

A carer is someone who provides unpaid care by looking after an ill, frail or disabled family member, friend or partner. The Carer Positive award is presented to employers in Scotland who have a working environment where carers are valued and supported. Carer Positive employers recognise the importance of retaining experienced members of staff, reducing absence, and cutting down on avoidable recruitment costs.

Results and Impact Carers UK launched a report with academics working in the Sustainable Care programme (Universities of Birmingham and Sheffield) on the likelihood of the average UK person becoming an unpaid carer in their lifetime. The top findings showed:
• The average UK person is just as likely to be an unpaid carer as homeowner
• Two thirds of UK adults can expect to care unpaid for a loved one in their lifetime
• Women are taking on caring responsibilities a decade earlier than men, at age 46
We used the findings to call on all political parties to commit to introducing a statutory right of five to ten days of paid care leave.

We generated 146 pieces of media coverage, reaching a total audience of almost 23 million people (22,792,771).

Broadcast highlights
Director of Business Development and Innovation, Madeleine Starr, was interviewed on Sky News at 6.50am. Madeleine spoke about ambitious and sustainable investment in the social care system, paid care leave, an NHS duty to identify carers and a public awareness campaign.
A member of the public wrote to us saying "it is rare to see someone in a TV interview so clear and precise as Madeleine Starr was on Sky this morning."
Director of Policy and Public Affairs, Emily Holzhausen, took part in a pre-recorded radio interview which was used in BBC Radio 5's news bulletins through the morning and across some regional radio bulletins. Carer Emma Lowndes was later interviewed about her experience and asked about paid care leave on Radio 5's Drive Time programme.
Professor Sue Yeandle took part in five radio interviews including Talk Radio, BBC Radio Berkshire, BBC Radio Newcastle, BBC Coventry and Warwickshire and BBC Radio Kent.
Emily Holzhausen took part in a debate on the BBC Asian Network's Big Debate show. Nick Ferrari mentioned our research on his LBC Breakfast programme, linking it with the launch of the Labour manifesto.
ITV News Meridian filmed carer Neeraj and his family in Southampton. They aired separate pre-recorded interviews with him and our Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Ruby Peacock, who was asked about the research and which was later broadcasted on the 6.30pm news on Carers Rights Day.
Nation colleagues took part in interviews: we saw Head of Carers NI, Clare-Anne Magee on BBC Radio Ulster, Director of Carers Scotland, Simon Hodgson, on Good Morning Scotland and Director of Carers Wales, Claire Morgan on Heart Radio and Beth Evans on BBC Radio Cymru.

Results and Impact On 5 February Carers UK released a report on working carers, Juggling work and unpaid care: A growing issue, which found that 2.6 million people have quit their job to care for a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill, with nearly half a million (468,000) leaving their job in the last two years alone - more than 600 people a day. This is a 12 per cent increase since Carers UK and YouGov polled the public in 2013. The findings also show that more people are caring than previously thought, with almost 5 million workers now juggling their paid job with caring - a dramatic rise compared with Census 2011 figures of 3 million. The research was released to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Employers for Carers, Carers UK's business forum of more than 115 employers committed to supporting carers in the workplace, and the launch of Carer Confident, the first UK-wide employer benchmarking scheme of its kind.

Media coverage of the report included:

Human beings are caring beings. Without care, human infants would not survive, and everyone has care needs at some point in their lives, through illness, injury, disability, or frailty. We are dependent on one another for life, and so for a good life. Interdependence, rather than independence, is a defining feature of being human. As Aristotle said in the Nicomachean Ethics, caring relationships are not only a necessary thing, but a splendid one.

Results and Impact A blog entry by Camille Allard
The current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which began in December 2019, presents a significant challenge for governments and employers. This equally presents a challenge for informal carers and the people they care for on a daily basis; these people may be in the most vulnerable position to the coronavirus' threat. Carers are therefore essential in helping to contain the virus spread, by taking care of themselves and the persons they care for, thereby alleviating pressure on an already very stretched health and social care workforce.

The study aims to develop a way of measuring the impact of care work on care worker's quality of life. It will begin development of an ASCOT-Staff measure, examining the quality of life of care staff, and the impact of care work upon this.

The focus of this research, is to understand and decide on the main aspects of care work that impact on the quality of life of staff working in social care in the UK. The study adopts a mixed-methods' research design including a literature review, focus group discussions, interviews and an online survey.

Diane has done previous research in care homes, during which she interviewed a resident who talked about her treatment, rights, and the rhetoric about person centeredness. Diane then turned the audio recording into soundscape and played it at this event. The audience were challenged to think differently about being on the receiving end of care, and then wrote poems about it.

Results and Impact 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the National Assistance Act (NAA) 1948, which helped to shape social services into their current form.

The Act created a safety net for people who, through circumstances such as old age or disability, could not pay into national insurance.

The Act created a legal duty for local authorities to provide suitable accommodation for those for whom support was not available elsewhere It was this legislation that underpinned care for older people, people with disabilities and people in need of mental health services until the Care Act 2014.

At this event, we will discuss and share early findings from the ESRC's Sustainable Care Programme (Comparing UK Care Systems). Speakers include Professor Catherine Needham, Professor Jon Glasby and Patrick Hall. They will discuss how the UK's four nations are developing and their different relationships to the NAA. We will also explore the history and the ongoing legacy of the NAA, including: health and care integration, the role of local government and the third sector.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Industry/Business
Results and Impact Various demographic, social and economic shifts across Europe and Asia have increased concern regarding the ability of these societies to provide sufficient quality and quantity care for their older citizens. As both the UK and Japan continue to age, health and care systems will have to adapt to be able to afford health services. To put it in context, in Japan in 2016 27.3% of the population were over 65 and, according to OECD figures, health care expenditure has risen from 6.3% of GDP in 1995 to 10.9% in 2015. In the UK, 18.5% of population are currently over 65 and health care expenditure accounted for 9.8% of GDP in 2016. How health and care systems adapt to cope with these challenges is a key issue in both the UK and Japan.

Patrick Hall, an RA on Sustainable Care, looked at how changes in societies have created new social challenges, and the effects that these changes have had on the concept and provision of care and the composition of care systems. He then discussed his work in comparing care regimes in the UK and what he thinks the British and Japanese systems can learn from one another.

Primary Audience Patients, carers and/or patient groups
Results and Impact As part of the Festival of Social Science, the Sustainable Care Programme is proud to present our exhibition I'll be Here in the Morning, highlighting the many and varied experiences of caring in 2020. One result of the upheaval and turmoil of the coronavirus pandemic has been a new focus on the lives of unpaid carers and people who use or require support.

The exhibition will take you on a journey through these lives, offering a view - through photographs, artwork, stories, poems and recipes - of the everyday experiences of those who are so often invisible in our society.

Our work in the Sustainable Care research programme looks at how, as a society, we approach the care and support needs of adults living at home with health problems or disabilities and those who support them. Our studies indicate that 'sustainable care' can only be achieved with a more even distribution of the work, responsibilities, and rewards of care, and when all generations and communities have a voice in decisions about care. Together, we can create care-friendly homes, living environments and workplaces, and see caring for each other, and empowering older and disabled people, as vital achievements - and not just costs - for our society.

In this very special exhibition, we have tried to indicate how the experiences revealed in the exhibits resonate with some of our research findings on care and caring. We invite you to pause and reflect on how these images of care also speak to you.

The event allowed the SC team to engage with new audiences, including policy and practice actors.

Health and social care systems around the world are relying on a hidden workforce - a group of people in society who often go unrecognized, are undervalued and unsupported. Unpaid caregivers provide a crucial safety net for national health care structures across the world. The interdependence of paid and unpaid carework must be taken into account as we design, build and tend our increasingly important and strained care economies.

While progress is slow, home care and caregivers have been recognized in Canada's federal, provincial and territorial Shared Health Priorities. Jurisdictions are putting in place new approaches to enhance access to care in the home and support the vital role of caregivers. The International Forum on Care and Caregiving facilitates knowledge exchange to shape health and social care in Canada and internationally. This full day event draws on world-class research, innovative policies and puts a spotlight on practical solutions to support care and caregiving.

Could social care benefit from an extra £132bn? It already does, Madeleine Starr MBE, Director of Business Development at Carers UK told me in the discussion we had at the recent CLGdotTV 'Audience With' on health and social care.
While there is great legislative framework laid down in the Care Act, unpaid carers in the UK still struggle to get the support they need, despite being worth 'a second NHS' to the UK economy.
6.5 million carers look after friends, family or neighbours who through illness, disability or old age need care that is not being provided by the NHS or formal care services.
This contribution, and indeed social care generally, is not sufficiently valued by those in power to support it with proper funding.
The situation has arisen partly because of the UK's artificial divide between health and social care, with the 'heroes' of the NHS always coming first in the queue for money.
But it is not just about money: our siloed system also prevents the sort of integration in care provision being seen overseas in places like the Netherlands and Estonia.

Investment in technology in adult social care is 'piecemeal' says study
The digital switchover is a great opportunity to shift from traditional telecare to flexible, networked, multi-functional Internet of Things devices. But it will only succeed if policymakers take urgent action.
So say researchers based at the University of Sheffield who are also calling for expert guidance for local authorities on emerging technologies.
Their report on the potential of technology says adult social care services may need a dedicated technology-focused role. And councils reliant on third-party providers "could be exposed to risks."
The authors note that although UK investment in care technologies research and development since 2000 has been significant, most initiatives have been "piecemeal and bottom up."

For decades the difficult problem of social care - how to fund it, how to provide it - has been kicked into the long grass by government after government. But last month the Prime Minister announced a policy which he said meant no-one would have to sell their house to fund their social care. He also promised more money for social care - though not immediately. A "health and social care levy" is to be created through an increase in National Insurance contributions. So is the problem of social care being fixed?

Results and Impact A blog on the CIRCLE website by Drs Matt Bennett and Yanan Zhang.
Concern has grown regarding the impact of population ageing, which incurs a higher demand for social care and NHS services, lower labour force participation and larger state pensions. However, the way we measure population ageing to account for demographic change and shifts in behaviour in society will have implications for the way policy makers and practitioners plan for our increasingly ageing society. The ONS have recently compared different 'dependency' measures that are used to capture population ageing, including the most common 'Old-Age Dependency Ratio' (OADR) and the 'Active Dependency Ratio' (ADR). The report highlights the need for a measure that accounts for economic activity and international migration when measuring the impact of ageing populations.

It is increasingly recognised that undertaking qualitative research can pose ethical challenges for the researcher. Yet academic literature rarely gives an account of the ethical and emotional pitfalls that doctoral researchers from the 'Global South' studying in the 'Global North' may experience if they return to their countries of origin to conduct fieldwork. In this blog, I reflect on the ethical and emotional challenges I experienced when I went back to Zimbabwe to conduct fieldwork with family members of my UK research participants.

'If we fail to meet social care needs adequately we are likely to see a decrease in labour market participation levels, especially among women, as greater numbers undertake informal care'. That was the warning from the Department of Health and Social Care this week, as part of the evidence it provided the committee advising on immigration rules post Brexit. Unless we can secure the future of our care workforce, more of us, and in particular more women, will end up giving up paid jobs to meet the growing need for care.

Results and Impact A blog by Professor Catherine Needham on the CIRCLE website.
For three weeks in a row, BBC Panorama has shown how high quality, immersive journalism can lift the lid on the otherwise hidden aspects of social care - the things that go on in people's homes and in secure units, places that commissioners, regulators and even researchers find it hard to see.

The first of these, set in Whorlton Hall, a secure psychiatric hospital, showed one kind of horror - staff effectively torturing residents with learning disabilities and autism. The second two episodes (detailing the impact of care budget cuts in Somerset) showed a different kind of distress: staff, families, commissioners all doing their best, but exhausted and burned out by an inadequately funded system.

We may read about the toll caring takes on families, but nothing is as powerful as seeing it up close. It offers a powerful corrective to those who say that families must do more, must take up their responsibilities. Here we saw family carers pushed to the brink, exhausted, unable to care for themselves, needing support in order to be able to continue to give the care they willingly give. It shows how far away we are from a care system that supports wellbeing or is sustainable.

Following a presentation explaining the challenges and opportunities associated with population Ageing in the MENA region, the team discussed ways of learning from the experience of countries like Italy. In particular, they discussed the role of social capital, especially that of the family and community, continues to play an important role in the provision of care to older people.

Giovanni Lamura discussed how the MENA region can learn from the Italian experience when formulating and implementing long term care policies. Specific to this experience are policies aiming at reducing social isolation at old age and making use of community support and volunteering.

Primary Audience Other audiences
Results and Impact Most British nationals who retire abroad to destinations like Spain, maintain strong physical, emotional and social ties to the UK. Family living in the UK often play an instrumental role in the provision of care and support for elderly British nationals in Spain, especially when they struggle to access local social services due to language and cultural barriers. Research undertaken through the Sustainable Care programme has explored the lived experiences of accessing care and support in Spain and found that some retirees choose to return to the UK when they develop care needs, to be close to their families and to access support from the welfare state. Uncertainty created by Brexit has also led some people to worry about their futures in Spain and so are contemplating returning to the UK.

In this episode, Dr Kelly Hall speaks to Dr Charles Betty about his research on the older British community in Spain, which focuses on return migration. Charles, who completed his PhD in 2017, is now 97 years old and has lived in Spain for the last 35 years. Charles talks about his research on return migration but also reflects on his own experiences of living in Spain, including how he and the British community more broadly have responded to Brexit. He also talks about the important role of British voluntary organisations in the Costa del Sol, including Age Care Association and hospital volunteer interpreter services, both of which he helped to establish many decades ago.

Results and Impact Tom Hunt (Centre for Care Co-Investigator and Deputy Director of SPERI (Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute) is joined by Rachel Harrison (Public Services National Officer, GMB) to discuss the issue of mandatory vaccination for care home workers in England. Since November last year, it has been mandatory for all care home staff in England to have had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of their deployment in a care home. The introduction of this policy has led to debate and concerns about the ethics of mandatory vaccination, it has also raised questions about the employment model in the care sector, about UK government's willingness to meaningfully engage with care workers and about the respect and value given to care work, and to the people providing it.

The policy has been in effect for 3 months, today's episode explores the impact so far, and what some of the wider implications might be.

Results and Impact n episode six, Obert Tawodzera, Camille Allard, Wing Yee Lam (University of Sheffield) and Breda Maloney (University College Dublin) discuss the similarities and differences between their research, and how current issues are impacting their research areas.

This episode is split into three parts:

Young carers, working carers and caring at a distance
Technology in care and COVID-19
Cultural and gender aspects of care
Obert's research is focused on exploring the role of new technologies in mediating long distance aged care relationships between UK based migrants and their overseas family members. The PhD is embedded within the wider work of Care 'In' and 'Out of' Place in the Sustainable Care programme, which aims to examine migrant experiences of care in and out of place, in order to develop understandings of sustainability and wellbeing.

Camille is also part of the Sustainable Care programme, and her research is on workplace support for employees who are also carers. She has been working with companies that offer different schemes of care leaves and is assessing how it could enhance a carer's ability to incorporate paid employment. She works with the team researching 'Combining work and care', which looks at under-researched aspects of the support needed to sustain the wellbeing of 'working carers'.

Wing's PhD research is about the juggles of informal caregivers managing paid work and eldercare. I am also passionate about research topics in work-life balance, employees' wellbeing, and equity in the workplace. Wing is working as a research assistant in two projects: Mental Health Awareness Training and Work-Life Balance in Hong Kong.

Breda is based in the University College Dublin and is researching young carers' experience of caring whilst attending secondary school, and their perceptions regarding their future careers. Breda is also part of the CAREWELL project which examines how family carers can be best supported to balance work with care.

Since I started working on the Sustainable Care Programme as Programme Manager in November 2017, I've realised that everyone has a story about an experience with the social care system: a grandparent coming to stay in the spare room; neighbours receiving daily visits from care workers; making the decision to move Mum or Dad into a care home. Social care is a responsibility devolved to the four nations of the UK, and so the system and our experiences of it are different in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. But until we need to deal with the system, how many of us understand how it works?

These workshops were designed to accelerate our international work, and helped to make progress swifter and more effective, and greatly enhance mutual understanding of concepts, theories, available data and policy contexts. We engaged 31 academics: members of our international SC partners (University of Sydney, University of New South Wales Sydney, Macquarie University and University of Western Australia [Australia]; Massey University and University of Auckland [New Zealand]) as well as new contacts (Karolinska Institutet, University of Manchester, Michigan State University), which allowed us to both consolidate existing relationships and develop new ones. Plans are currently being developed to take these relationships further.

Results and Impact 20 August: Madeleine Starr attended a roundtable discussion as part of the Topol Review on preparing the workforce to deliver the digital future. The Topol Review is building an understanding of how technologies such as genomics, digital medicine, artificial intelligence and robotics are likely to change the work of clinical and other staff to improve health and care services and create a more sustainable NHS.

The purpose in attending was to ensure that the review was considering sustainability in care services as well as health services, and the need to include the care workforce in its considerations, making reference to the contribution of the Sustainable Care programme to knowledge in this area.
