Episode 77 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

This week, Craig Dalzell talks to special guest Colin Turbett. Colin is a retired social worker who now writes on reform of the sector. He is a member of Common Weal’s Care Reform Working Group and is currently working with the group on a blueprint for a National Care Service.

Colin’s upcoming paper for the group looks at reform of the social work sector, arguing that the sector has been greatly eroded over the past several decades and now focuses too much on post-interventionist care of people who have already been failed by society rather than being a preventative force in Scotland’s social security network.

Colin’s paper will be published in the near future.

Nick Kempe’s paper on Covid and care homes, mentioned in the podcast, can be read here.

The Care Reform Group’s submission to the Feeley Review can be read here and their Manifesto for a National Care Service can be found here.
