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 held a series of workshops and meetings to introduce 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 been successful in generating subsequent fruitful collaborations 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. Also in the first half of 2018, with the aim of building and strengthening our relationships with policy partners and stakeholders across the UK, with partner Carers UK's national offices in London, Glasgow, Belfast and Cardiff, we organised a series of one-day meetings to establish productive academic-policy dialogue. These were used 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 and with external partners. These led to multiple opportunities for research engagement and impact, and supported some teams to refine their research designs and enhance 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 a planned series of regional policy seminars in London. This was an event for key care sector influencers, at which we discussed evidenced-based challenges in care, with a senior Guardian journalist as the event facilitator. Discussions focused on how social care arrangements in England can be made sustainable for the future. Covid-19 restrictions and the impact of the pandemic on the care sector prevented us from completing this series; instead, we held multiple online discussions with non-academic care sector partners in April-May 2021, to explore how they were experiencing and tracking experience of the pandemic. We have fed intelligence from this into our future research plans. Our experience in the Sustainable Care programme, and our extensive contact with sector partners throughout, also fed into our involvement (in 2020) in our proposal (led by Co-I Glasby) in the competition to lead the new ASC Evidence Implementation Centre. This was successful, in large part, we believe, due to the multiple meaningful relationships with care sector partners we were able to bring together. Also in autumn 2020, our PI participated in the Carers Advisory Group (set up as part of the Adult Social Care Covid-19 Task Force established by the Department for Health and Social Care [DHSC]), bringing intelligence from our research into discussions to inform advice on how carers' support should be organised as the UK entered the 'winter pressures' phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. Multiple recommendations by the group were subsequently accepted and implemented by DHSC. In many meetings (reported elsewhere), our PI and work package leaders have engaged directly with programme partners to discuss our research design, emerging findings and their policy and practice significance. An example includes close working with the employer forum Employers for Carers, which supported our team by making introductions to its member companies. Team members researching work-care reconciliation have participated in numerous EfC members' networking events, and worked 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. In 2020, we fed information from our studies on this topic into the Government's Consultation on introducing a statutory right to Carers' Leave. This drew on our relevant international comparative work and detailed studies in the UK. Our response was also shared with the TUC which drew on it in ongoing work to promote workplace rights for carers. As our detailed research findings emerged in 2020, we put considerable effort into online communications, including using social media and our website to share results in accessible and eye-catching ways. We have begun producing a series of 'Care Matters' podcasts, based on our studies (an example is the work of co-I Hall, on the caring circumstances of retired British people living in Spain, one of several conversational accounts of findings emerging from our studies). We are confident this takes our evidence to new audiences, as did our innovative online exhibition (also in 2020) I'll be here in the morning: celebrating our community of care', which used photography, artwork, stories, poems and recipes to highlight varied experiences of giving and receiving care during the pandemic. We are confident these 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 aspect of our work continues to be important for influencing public debate as the Government considers policy changes planned for 2021. Working with partner Carers UK, we developed a series of publications (in our Care Matters reports series) to share new analysis of statistical evidence about caring and Covid-19. These drew considerable attention, including questions asked in Parliament and extensive media coverage, making many in the general public aware of the financial hardships and difficulties experienced by carers as they sought to provide unpaid care, outside their own households, during the Covid-19 crisis and in the context of job loss, enforced homeworking, and restrictions on social contact. Throughout our programme, we have worked actively with industry, designers, developers and care providers on the critical issue of technology use in care. We have maintained an ongoing dialogue with partner the TSA (the Technology-enabled care Services Association) to share research intelligence, also undertaking research with multiple local authorities. We are producing a steady stream of policy and practice focused outputs and publications (almost all available freely on our website), and have participated in numerous online seminars, workshops and discussions with sector partners (reported elsewhere). Following autumn 2019 visits to leading European NGOs in Sweden and the Netherlands with strong reputations for effective translation of research into practice, we have applied this new learning in developing additional modes of sharing research findings and reaching broader audiences. All teams across our programme continue to regularly review their plans and opportunities for policy impact and public engagement, guided by our Director of Impact and PI, with a view to maximising the influence of our research on policy and practice in adult social care in the four nations of the UK. Our first impacts on policy and practice emerged in 2018 as we commenced implementation of our collaborative approach to the development of the Sustainable Care programme's research agenda. As evidenced elsewhere, we have continued to work in regular and close connection with our team's extensive range of policy and practice partners, drawing new partners into our activities and sharing emerging findings from our research in varied, and increasingly accessible, ways. It is too early to know how much of a difference our research will make to outcomes and our ultimate goal of making a contribution to the reshaping of care arrangements in the UK. We are confident our research is increasingly visible and targeted in the most effective ways we can identify. We expect this to increase as our ESRC-funded work concludes (August 2021) and in following years, when the programme's multiple outputs, across a spectrum from peer-reviewed journal articles to accessible multimedia online output, continue to engage, inform and persuade opinion formers, decision-makers and the general public of the importance of sustainable policies and practices in care and of the many opportunities to improve experiences of care.

We also have a good technology offering which [tech person] will explain. That is a key addition which was flagged in your report." The Tech person has said: "Primarily we have Home Aware available to clients which monitors movement in the home, and learns 'normal' routines then sends alerts or actionable insights to family (and/or the office) when something out of the ordinary happens. 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."

The Carers Advisory Group was set up to provide independent advice to the Adult Social Care Sector COVID-19 Taskforce. With regards to carers, our remit was to provide: • advice on the Government's COVID-19 Adult Social Care Plan (published 15 April 2020), • advice on the implementation of the Care Homes Support Package; and • proposals on the overall advice to Government on what should be in place in the coming months, in time for and throughout winter. The Adult Social Care Winter Plan included carers in key places, and a number of recommendations from the Carers Advisory Group were taken up, including some of the ones that the Advisory Group highlighted as priorities: * breaks and reinstatement of services * flu jabs * review and assessment of carers whose needs may have changed, and * identification of young carers - finding a way for systems to identify them could be an important step forward.

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. Professor Sue Yeandle (PI) attended a research workshop coordinated by CoE AgeCare and the LSE on care poverty, London, January 2020.

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.

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.

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 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 A blog entry by Patrick Hall,
Sustainable Care Research Associate

I was recently asked by Demos, the cross-party think-tank, to participate in a roundtable with MP Danny Kruger to discuss his recent letter to Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock. In his letter, Kruger set out a series of principles which he believes should shape the design of a new system. He opposes the establishment of a 'single, centralised state service' for social care (mirroring the NHS), and emphasises support for families, in an approach he calls 'family-led care'. Kruger favours adopting a German or Japanese-style social insurance system to inject the extra funding needed to expand support, which he wants to see delivered with an option for care recipients to receive cash payments or services in-kind (although the Japanese system doesn't allow payment to family members). Kruger claims this system 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. While the current system in England does enable flexible payment: through the Attendance Allowance and direct payments, Kruger doesn't mention what would change about these systems, other than that payments to family members would be permitted.

In February 2020 we finished a three year project about care markets. Six months later, after sign-off procedures and development of accompanying resources, the project was published. That six months was the most traumatic and turbulent of any period in recent history. The Covid-19 pandemic swept through care homes, resulting in 30,500 excess deaths between 28th December 2019 and 19th June 2020. Domiciliary care had a greater proportional increase in excess deaths than care homes for the same period. Thousands of people have faced isolation and distress as day services have closed and many older people been confined to their homes. Do any of the things we knew in February 2020 still hold true?

In its new report, 'Employment and COVID-19: time for a new deal', published today 14 Dec 2020 the UK Parliament's House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee calls on the Government to:
significantly expand the number of care workers,
do this by increasing funding in the social care sector,
stipulate that this should be used to raise careworkers' wages and improve training and conditions.

Our research in the Sustainable Care programme strongly supports this conclusion.

Results and Impact Urgent reform of the funding of UK adult social care is needed to save a desperately overstretched system which has now reached breaking point, warn policy experts, Jon Glasby, Matthew Bennett, Yanan Zhang and Patrick Hall at the University of Birmingham.
The crisis is partly the result of a 'lost decade' in which policymakers systematically failed to act on alarms raised back in 2010, say the researchers in a hard-hitting report published in the Journal of Social Policy.

In what is described as "the first analysis of its kind to present policy makers with different scenarios for adult social care funding and reform, to view these in practice (by comparing them to nearly a decade of policy) and to set out the relationship between future economic growth and the provision of sustainable adult social care", the team, led by Professor Jon Glasby in the School of Social Policy, asserts that without swift Government intervention, the adult social care system could quickly become unsustainable. The 2020 update was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council part of UK Research and Innovation, as part of the research titled "Sustainable Care: connecting people and systems, 2017-21", led by the University of Sheffield's Professor Sue Yeandle.

For perhaps two decades people have been declaring that there is a crisis in social care - and over the last decade it has become more acute as access to care and funding for care have reduced at the same time as the need and demand for care have increased. Governments have produced a long list of reports, reviews and proposals but little action has followed. Social care arrangements in the four countries of the UK have diverged, most notably with integrated health and care delivery in Northern Ireland and free personal care in Scotland. The current pandemic has been a tragedy particularly in social care and has thrown the issues of resourcing into painfully sharp relief. In this plenary our three presenters will explore the longstanding challenges of social care as well as the current crisis, and ask what we can learn from research and comparative analysis across the UK.

The English social care system is failing to meet the needs of our population. Complex to navigate, underfunded, unfair and highly variable, it is in urgent need of fundamental reform. While the problems are well understood, less attention has been paid to what a sustainable and functional system might look like. England is not alone in facing the challenges of an increasingly older population and steep growth in care needs among all ages. So what steps have other countries taken to address these same issues?

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.

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)

"We've been clapping for carers throughout the pandemic. The profile of carers has risen. Yet a number of them are silently facing unthinkable hardships."

Did you clap for our carers?

Despite their recently raised profile, our work demonstrates that without reform of adult social care, the need for unpaid care for someone who is elderly or who has an illness or disability will affect us all. Unpaid carers provide important support for others worth £132 billion a year - similar to the total cost of our NHS.

The negative consequences associated with caring are well documented: unpaid carers are more likely to face financial strain, and experience poorer mental and physical health, and social isolation.

In March 2020, the UK Government imposed 'lockdown' measures, compounding the pressures faced by carers, as they balance their caring responsibilities alongside paid work and family commitments. This has occurred in a context of historically tight constraints on funding for adult social care services, exacerbated by the austerity policy adopted by the UK Government following the 2008 financial crisis.

Our current study looks at the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on carers' use of foodbanks, experience of hunger, and at changes in their mental wellbeing. We used a large, representative longitudinal sample of the UK's population from Understanding Society, incorporating their new April 2020 COVID-19 survey. We identified people who provide care outside their household for someone who is elderly, or has a long-term illness or disability, and compared them to people who did not provide unpaid care.

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 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.

Results and Impact PI Sue Yeandle and Co-I Majella Kilkey visited Taipei, Taiwan, for 3 days of meetings, workshops and a symposium, funded by extra funds from the ESRC. The SCP has one partner in Taiwan (National Dong-Hua University), who helped organise this trip. Yeandle and Kilkey met with the Taiwan International Workers Association TIWA, the Awakening Foundation, the Pearl Buck Foundation, a local community with telecare and the Research Center on ICF and Health and Assistive Technology, National Yang-Ming University. These meetings were based around our work package "Care in and out of place" and increased our understanding of the Taiwanese approach to the long-term care in Taiwan, migration and employment issues and the use of technology. The team were introduced to new stakeholders, discussed the SCP and will be receiving periodic updates to help with the international comparative work.

Results and Impact The aim of Eurocarers Study Visits is provide an opportunity for their members to learn from each other, take stock of the network's knowledge and experience. The focus of this Study Visit was improving the social inclusion of carers through the development of ICT-based solutions. A number of Eurocarers' members have worked on or are working on projects aimed at empowering carers and break their isolation through access to information, training, validation of skills, and peer-support. This Study Visit paid particular attention to these types of initiatives. My role was to talk briefly about the Sustainable Care programme (Eurocarers is one of our international policy partners), provide a summary of the day's presentations and agree action points and next steps, including the potential for further sharing of interesting practice and research.

Results and Impact As one of SC linked PhD projects is co-funded by a Dutch University, a trip to the Netherlands was undertaken to make valuable connections to Dutch experts in the field of work and care and to get international stakeholder feedback on the findings of the scoping reviews conducted during the early stages of the project. Activities were thus intended for networking, to get insight into the situation of working carers in the Netherlands, to get feedback on the findings of the two scoping reviews and to get input on the research plan. Unexpectedly, valuable connections with a Dutch government project investigating the role of technology in the support of working carers have been made. Plans for potential future collaboration to enrich both projects have been set in motion.

Form Of Engagement Activity A formal working group, expert panel or dialogue

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.

Results and Impact Much of the work of caring for the growing population of older adults is done by family members who often find themselves in the proverbial "club sandwich" generation, struggling to juggle the competing demands of employment, raising a family, and providing unpaid care. Caregiving is often stressful and burdensome, in part due to the lack of support for family carers. In this blog post, the authors of a new qualitative study in BMC Geriatrics discuss what they learned about carers' goals and how technology could help them.

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."

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.

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 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 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.

Results and Impact A blog entry by Dr Kelly Davidge,
Sustainable Care Programme Manager
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?

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.

Results and Impact This June, IPPR published The Lord Darzi Review of Health and Care. The review set out a vision for the future of health and care which included recommendations for both additional funding and reform.
At the heart of the Darzi Review was a recommendation for free adult personal care, as a way of providing high quality care for everyone in old age and creating a more integrated health and care system.
This autumn the Government will publish a Green Paper on social care, setting out its strategy on securing better and substantive care going forward. As part of this ongoing, our two organisations will be presenting some ground-breaking work on social care funding to make the case for change and options for further investment.

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 The UK General Election on 12 December 2019 led to a new Conservative Government under Prime Minister Boris Johnson. A week later, the new Government's programme was set out in the Queen's Speech. The Conservative manifesto promised to build cross-party consensus on tackling problems in social care and find solutions that command the widest possible support and stand the test of time.

The Sustainable Care team is keen to engage with this process. This week, PI Sue Yeandle asked each of us to highlight both a key 'worry' about social care in the UK, and something that inspires us to think things can improve. A selection of our thoughts appears in this blog.
