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 The research team commenced its activities to generate impact in the first months of the award, as planned. We began with activities to deepen and strengthen the partnerships linked to our award. This was done by: • agreeing formal 'Participation Agreements' (reported elsewhere); • briefing partners on our research plans; • sharing our early work on conceptual development through presentations to selected partners and in workshops; • working with partners to further specify our research questions and activities to ensure these are meaningful in the evolving policy context for adult social care in the UK and internationally. In May 2018 we introduced key partners the Care Quality Commission (official regulator), Care England (employer body); and Carers UK (charity and 'voice of carers') to all the newly appointed members of our research team. This initiated two-way dialogue which has already borne fruit in generating fruitful collaboration at work package level. In spring-summer 2018 we organised a series of policy Round Tables on 'Re-imagining Care', co-produced by the Sustainable Care team and Carers UK, to set the context for the research, engage partners and stakeholders in shaping our impact agenda, and to contribute thinking relevant to the forthcoming Government consultation on social care. In spring 2018, to build and strengthen relationships with policy partners and stakeholders in the four nations of the UK, (working through partner Carers UK's national offices in London, Glasgow, Belfast and Cardiff), we organised a series of one-day meetings to engage in academic/policy dialogue. We used these to identify opportunities, challenges and key developments in adult social care in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and to build and deepen relationships across the research team with external partners. These are already bearing fruit in terms of research engagement and impact, and in some cases are supporting us with research design and research access. In 2019, we worked closely with Carers UK to produce a report for Carers Rights Day, on the likelihood of the average UK person becoming an unpaid carer in their lifetime. As reported in our submission, subsequent media reached at least 23 million people, and we will be working with Carers UK again in 2020 to produce further similar high impact reports. In early 2020, we commenced our series of regional policy seminars in London, where discussions focused on how social care arrangements in England can be made sustainable for the future. Additional events are planned throughout 2020 to discuss care arrangements in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland; additional seminars looking at adult social care in some of the regions of England will take place in Sheffield and Birmingham in 2021. We have also, and in various other meetings (reported elsewhere) in which either the PI or relevant work package leaders have participated, we have engaged directly with relevant programme partners to discuss our research design, emerging findings and their policy and practice significance. As an example, the employer forum Employers for Carers works closely and regularly with our team researching work-care reconciliation. The forum is supporting the SCP by making introductions to its member companies, including members of our team researching work-care reconciliation in its members' networking events, and working with us to plan research with impact to create lasting change - both at the level of policy on working carers and at the level of employment practices in supporting workers with caring responsibilities. We are confident the above and other programme activities, and our related conversations and contacts with partners, are succeeding in helping us influence public debate and discussions in the care sector about the future resourcing and organisation of care. This has become exceptionally timely as the new Government elected in December 2019 has made a clear commitment to introduce policy changes within 12 months. We are also actively working with industry and designers, for example on technology and care, including through our partner the TSA (technology-enabled care services association) and progressing links with organisations that support and work with home care workers, including migrant workers, including unions and locally and regionally based NGOs. We are actively planning policy and practice focused outputs and publications and have a series of policy and practice engagement events in our calendar for 2020 and into 2021. In autumn 2019 our PI and one Co-! visited two of Europe's leading voluntary organisations (in Sweden and the Netherlands) that have strong reputations for effectively translating research evidence into policy and practice, to learn from their experience. All teams across our programme regularly review their plans and opportunities for policy impact and public engagement, supported by our Director of Impact and our PI, with a view to maximising the influence our research can have on policy and practice in adult social care in the four nations of the UK.

Title Delphi Survey 
Description Note that none of the above options in "select the type of research tool or method" were relevant. This is a Delphi Survey. Topic: Estimating demand and supply of migrant home care workers in the UK. We invited 53 experts and stakeholders from across the UK to take part in an expert (Delphi) survey on the topic 'demand and supply of migrant home care workers in the UK'. Participants were identified through existing networks and/or recommendations of Sustainable Care senior team members, programme advisory board, and partners. Experts were approached by email and invited to complete the survey questionnaire online. There were 32 complete responses; over half of respondents (n = 20) described their expertise as relating to the 'social care workforce' and/or 'home care', and five indicated that their expertise was in 'immigration policy'. Some respondents had additional expertise in workforce modelling, employment rights, social care and other relevant areas. This initial round of the Delphi survey was drafted and piloted within the Sustainable Care research team in December 2018. The data presented here were collected from 32 respondents who completed the survey from January to February 2019.

PI Contribution Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care (CoE AgeCare) is one of the 12 Centres of Excellence that the Academy of Finland has chosen for the period 2018-2025. CoEs are flagships of Finnish research that are expected to carve out new avenues for research, develop creative research environments and train new talented researchers. CoE AgeCare studies the transformation of ageing and care using novel conceptual and interdisciplinary perspectives, conjoining the analysis of diversification of everyday life to that of ongoing profound societal and policy change. The CoE combines scholarship from social policy, sociology and gerontology, analysing older people's care needs, agency and equality as well as the changing character of care work in the context of transnationalisation and digitalisation of the ageing society. Professor Sue Yeandle (PI) and PDRA Patrick Hall attended the kick-off meeting in Jyväskylä, November 2018. They attended a number of collaboration workshops during the two day meeting, including Care Needs and Inequalities; Agency and Self-Determination of Older People; and Diversification of Care Work. The meeting allowed Sue and Patrick to contribute to developing the methods, theories and practices of the AgeCare research, and in turn to bring back ideas and concepts into SC.

Organisation Brock University

Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution PI Yeandle is a collaborator on the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council and Canadian Institutes of Health Research funded project "Mobilizing a Caregiver-Friendly Workplace Standard: A Partnership Approach".
Collaborator Contribution There are more than 5.6 million employees in Canada with adult/elder care responsibilities and 35% of them are simultaneously employed (2012). Lack of workplace support can result in carer-employees (CEs) leaving the workforce, and/or missed work days, or early retirements which can impact employers in terms of reduced productivity and avoidable costs due to a range of HR issues, such as turnover and absenteeism. Given the gendered nature of both family caregiving and the labour sector, it is incumbent upon workplaces to implement gender-sensitive caregiver-friendly workplace practices (CFWPs) to appropriately accommodate CEs whilst sustaining efficiencies in the workplace. Doing so enhances work-life balance, workforce retention, and reduces health costs. The Healthy, Productive Workplace -- Partnership Development Grant (HPW-PDG) allowed McMaster University to partner with the Canadian Standards Association, among others, to create a bilingual Caregiver Inclusive and Accommodating Workplace Organizations Standard for Canadian workplaces. This HPW-Partnership Grant (PG) will mobilize uptake of the Standard in Canada and abroad, while accruing evidence on the Standard's broader health and economic impacts.GOALS: In partnership with: (i) academic researchers; (ii) a range of diverse, committed partners - representing academia, government, non-government/non-profit, private business/service providers, and labour, and; (iii) collaborators representing various industries, the proposed partnership will disseminate and mobilize the Standard across Canada and the world. We will deliver a sex and gender-sensitive program of research to assist CEs, human resource professionals, unions, workers associations, government organizations, and a variety of employers, to implement the successful uptake of the Standard. RESEARCH PROGRAM: Led by Dr. Allison Williams, a CIHR Research Chair in Gender, Work and Health, and the Sex and Gender Champion for the PG, the proposed research program will be executed by a geographically representative group of invited partners and collaborators, together with world-class academic researchers with unmatched expertise in this field. In addition to the internationalization of the Standard (Project 1), where the Canadian Standards Association will follow a specific standards protocol, an international comparative review of CFWPs will be undertaken to provide a baseline for the global uptake. Carers Canada will lead Project 2, which includes a rigorous program of knowledge mobilization and evaluation. Project 3 involves a qualitative assessment of experts, recruited from the Conference Board of Canada, to diagnose readiness to support CEs in Canadian organizations. The results of Project 3 will inform a feasibility study (Project 4), which will be realized in partnership with Habanero Consulting Inc. Working with a host of partners representing precarious workers and cultural minority groups, Projects 5 and 6 will realize the Standard's cultural competency/ safety. RESEARCH OUTCOMES: This proposed research project, which includes a robust knowledge mobilization program, will support new thinking and behavior that will lead to improvements in the economic, social, cultural and intellectual well-being in Canada and internationally. Research capacity will be built, with 29 trainees and 2 emerging scholars integrated in all aspects of the research, governance and partnership. New knowledge about CFWPs will be generated, providing the evidence needed for continued uptake of the Standard, and informing curricula in business management/HR -- both of which will ensure ongoing sustainability of the Standard as a significant intervention in improving healthy, productive workplaces in Canada and abroad.

Project 3 involves a qualitative assessment of experts, recruited from the Conference Board of Canada, to diagnose readiness to support CEs in Canadian organizations. The results of Project 3 will inform a feasibility study (Project 4), which will be realized in partnership with Habanero Consulting Inc. Working with a host of partners representing precarious workers and cultural minority groups, Projects 5 and 6 will realize the Standard's cultural competency/ safety. RESEARCH OUTCOMES: This proposed research project, which includes a robust knowledge mobilization program, will support new thinking and behavior that will lead to improvements in the economic, social, cultural and intellectual well-being in Canada and internationally. Research capacity will be built, with 29 trainees and 2 emerging scholars integrated in all aspects of the research, governance and partnership. New knowledge about CFWPs will be generated, providing the evidence needed for continued uptake of the Standard, and informing curricula in business management/HR -- both of which will ensure ongoing sustainability of the Standard as a significant intervention in improving healthy, productive workplaces in Canada and abroad.

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.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact Professor Louise Ryan and Dr Majella Kilkey of the Sustainable Care programme recently had an article published in The Conversation, regarding a new report by the UK's Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the impact of migration from the EU.

Contrary to the negative stereotypes perpetuated by many politicians and sections of the media, a comprehensive new report from the UK's Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has found that migration from the EU has a positive impact on many areas of society.

The long-awaited report made a set of recommendations which the government has promised to consider before announcing its own post-Brexit immigration strategy. The key recommendation is that, unless there is a specific trade deal reached between the EU and UK which makes special provision for immigration, EU citizens should be treated no differently from non-EU citizens under a new UK-managed migration system.

Before reaching its recommendations, the MAC undertook an extensive consultation. It concluded that migration from the European Economic Area (EEA) - the EU states plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway - does not, on the whole, have a negative impact on society.

It has little or no impact on the overall employment, unemployment and wages of UK-born workers. It has a positive impact on productivity and innovation, especially so from highly skilled migration. EEA migrants also contribute more in taxation than they consume in services, especially so for the NHS and social care.

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.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
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:

- LBC Breakfast with Nick Ferrari
- BBC Two Victoria Derbyshire show
- BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour
- Sky lunchtime News
- Channel 5 Evening News (to be broadcasted at 6.30)

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 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.

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.

Results and Impact As part of an ESRC-funded research visit to Toronto, the team co-hosted (with the Centre for Global Social Policy at the University of Toronto, the Canadian Home Care Association and Carers Canada) and participated in International Forum on Care and Caregiving: research, policy and practice. 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.

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.

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.

Results and Impact In research I'm doing about social care in the four nations of the UK, Northern Ireland is usually talked about as the exception, the distinctive case, where different rules apply. England's Care Act 2014 has equivalent legislation in Scotland and Wales, but not in Northern Ireland. The key policy framework for community care in Northern Ireland dates from 1990. With no executive in Northern Ireland since 2017, there is little hope of introducing much needed change, for example, in relation to carers' rights. Northern Irish exceptionalism is also evidenced in its integrated health and social care system, established in the 1970s - decades ahead of the rest of the UK (although social care hasn't necessarily thrived in this context).

Results and Impact In the twenty years since the devolution arrangements the four nations of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) have gone their separate ways with their care arrangements. Research that we are conducting for the ESRC Sustainable Care programme, highlights the different principles which are shaping care systems in the four areas.

The 'natural experiment' idea of comparing the four nations, 20 years on from a common starting point in 1998, has been one of the first casualties of our project. It is clear that the four countries did not have the same care systems in 1998. This is partly because of historical patterns of service difference and partly due to demographic characteristics. It is also due to the extent to which what it means to care is embedded in conceptions of self, family and community: each of which is part of the sense of distinctiveness of the four nations. Through the project we are exploring how best to categorise the four within broader care typologies. It is also important to recognise that some key policies which affect the care system are still retained at the UK level (such as immigration, disability benefits and statutory care leave).

The event in England engaged with a number of nation stakeholders to gather their opinions and ideas on our work package Comparing UK Care Systems: prospects, development and differentiation in the four UK nations. These included: Surrey County Council, Department for Work and Pensions, NHS England, Age UK, Disability Law Service, Community Care and Disability Law Service, MS Society and Care & Support Alliance, Healthwatch, DHSC, Carers UK.

Results and Impact The Sustainable Care programme hosted the first SC Annual Programme Conference in September 2018. The conference involved a "team day" for the core SC team plus a few international partners (Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences; University of Jyväskylä, University of Ljubljana) where we discussed the SCP, impact and publication plans. The second day was a Research and Policy Day, where we welcomed a larger audience from a variety of SC partners (Department of Work and Pensions, Equality and Human Rights Committee, Care Quality Commission, Care England, TUC, Eurofound, Eurocarers, ESRC, TSA, Linneaus University, Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences; University of Jyväskylä, University of Ljubljana and the Carers Resource) and others (Innovation Caucus, University of York, Elder, Sheffield Young Carers). During the Research and Policy day, we hosted a number of panels: International Panel; Sustainable care service delivery; Sustainable support for carers; Care contexts: inequality, diversity, mobility) and presented findings from our seven "Re-Imagining Care" roundtables (reported on Researchfish as our first set of Policy Perspectives).

These two days allowed members of the team to discuss current and future plans with each other and with wider stakeholders, to disseminate our first years work and to network with key stakeholders.

Results and Impact The SCP aims to explore the sustainability of care and to consider how the system can deliver wellbeing outcomes. Our overarching objective is to advance understanding of sources of economic and social sustainability in care, especially how wellbeing outcomes can be achieved for care users, their families and carers, and paid care workers.
We are holding a series of Policy Seminars in which we hope to engage key stakeholders in each of the UK's four nations in constructive, future-oriented debate about social care, moving on from a 'crisis' discourse to provoke new thinking about scalable, long-term solutions which move on.

Our London event was on Wednesday 5th February 2020 at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace.

Discussions at the interactive seminar will focus on how social care arrangements can be made sustainable for the future: in the longer term, what should England's social care arrangements look like?
• What role should the state play and how should it relate to businesses and third sector bodies in care arrangements?
• Can consensus be reached on standards regarding recognition, rights, vulnerabilities, choice and prevention?
• Is the approach to planning, procurement and commissioning, set out in existing legislation, working? If not, why not?
• What is left out in existing legislative and policy frameworks?
• How does technology contribute to sustainable care systems?

Results and Impact Symposium to mark the kick-off of their work package "Care 'In' and 'Out of' Place: towards sustainability and wellbeing in diverse and mobile contexts". Work Package Leaders Majella Kilkey and Louise Ryan brought together leading academics on ageing, care and migration, as well as practitioners and community organisations from across the country. Research Associate Magda Lorinc and PhD student Obert Tawodzera were also involved.

The speakers discussed the 'state of the art' in academic research on how ageing and care needs are experienced and negotiated through migration. The experiences of retiree migrants in Spain and France, and the likely impact of Brexit, were examined by Alistair Hunter (University of Edinburgh), Inés Calzada (Complutense University Madrid; SC academic partner), Dan Horsfall (University of York) and Kelly Hall (University of Birmingham; SC researcher). Presenting research on ageing migrants in the UK, Elisabetta Zontini (University of Nottingham) focused on Italian migrants in Nottingham and how relations with the country of origin shifted through the life course. Shereen Hussein (Kings College London; SC Co-Investigator), drew on research with Turkish migrants to consider how experiences of ageing were shaped by the intersections of gender, class and ethnicity. Julia Brannen (UCL) discussed methodological issues in conducting research across different generations of migrant men. Omar Khan (Runnymede Trust), presented statistical data on the persistent patterns of inequality across older BME groups in the UK. Meanwhile, the practical challenges facing ageing migrants in the UK and the varying community resources available to them were discussed by representatives from Irish, Polish and African-Caribbean organisations. These are the three populations of ageing migrants which the project Care 'In' and 'Out of' Place will focus upon. Tamara Fieldsend (Polish Drop-in Centre & Library, Barnsley), Clinton McKoy & Olivier Tsemo (SADACCA, Sheffield), Mary Tilki (Cuimhne, Irish Memory Loss Alliance) and Barbara Drozdowicz (East European Resource Centre, London) discussed their shared experiences of voluntary sector funding cuts in the context of Austerity, as well as the increasingly hostile anti-immigration environment. The recent example of the 'children of Windrush', several of whom were threatened with deportation despite living in the UK for most of their lives, sparked much discussion about how immigration policies are impacting upon particular communities, including when they try to access benefits and health and social care provisions in older age Moreover, this issue also underlined the concerns of EU citizens about the security of their status and entitlement to access services after Brexit.

The event provided much food for thought and highlighted the need for ongoing research around migration, ageing and care, especially in the current context of Brexit and Austerity policies, and allowed the Work Package team to introduce the SC work to a wider audience.

On the 4th of September we celebrated Professional Care Workers' Day, a festival to support the 1.6 million care workers in the UK.

The festival was organised by NACAS (National Association for Carer and Support Workers), a professional membership body for care workers and marked by events and celebrations across the country. Karla and Agnes from the Sustainable Care team attended the main event in London that was packed with inspiring keynote speakers, exhibitors and various workshops, from self-massage and physiotherapy to eating well when working shifts and mindfulness to support the wellbeing of professional care workers.

Results and Impact Summer had definitely arrived as many of the Sustainable Care team congregated for the 4th Transforming Care Conference in Copenhagen on 24th-26th June 2019. The theme of the conference was: 'Changing Priorities: the making of care policy and practices', and as an international conference this offered the chance to hear about how many other countries are managing the challenges associated with Social Care. One of the panel sessions that I attended proved to have a great deal of overlap with my own research looking at innovative providers of care delivered at home. While there were discussions around the impact of austerity and the lack of funding as you may expect, the drive for increased marketisation to produce efficiencies and more streamlined services raised questions around the ethics of creating and perpetuating poor working conditions for care workers. Here are some of my reflections.

Results and Impact Eurocarers, the 'European association working for carers', held a two-day workshop in 2019 hosted by its Italian member the National Institute of Health and Science on Ageing (INRCA). Eurocarers' Research Working Group (ERWG) meetings are a regular feature of the international non-governmental organisation's (NGO's) timetable, bringing together researchers and carers' organisations that use research to discuss comparative cross-national research and studies in different European countries. Over 30 participants from 11 countries discussed recently completed or ongoing studies, learned about policy developments in care and caring at the European Union (EU) level, and discussed the need for new studies to support policy and practice on care and caring.

Results and Impact Janet Fast & Jacqui Eales. published article on Technology to support carer well-being in The Conversation Sept 2019.

In June, the government of Canada released its long-awaited Dementia Strategy for Canada: Together We Aspire.

As a family caregiving researcher for more than two decades and a former family caregiver to my father, who had dementia, the strategy was welcome news. But my own research and personal experience suggest that we're falling short of the aspiration to be "a Canada in which all people living with dementia and caregivers are valued and supported."

I agree, perhaps selfishly, that research and innovation are essential for effective implementation of the dementia strategy. AGE-WELL NCE, Canada's technology and aging network, engages older people, caregivers, product developers and designers in the development of technologies that can make their lives better.

I co-lead the AGE-WELL research project that is responsible for adding to what we already know about caregivers' needs, developing new technologies to meet those needs and advocating for new policies and practices that will reduce the negative consequences of care. My team's work shows clearly that caregiving takes a toll on the nearly half million Canadians caring for a family member or friend with dementia. Other caregivers also pay a price: poorer physical and mental health, social isolation and loneliness, financial hardship and insecurity. But that price is steeper when caring for someone with dementia.
