Rachel Peacock is CEO of the support provider Making Space. Here she describes the “current reality” for people supported, families, staff and managers and offers thoughts about the future. Hers is in part a story of struggle, fear and grief but also one of courage, caring, love and mutual support. She asks that social care staff be treated exactly the same as their wonderful NHS colleagues and some assurances about the future – particularly around the “easments” to the Care Act including around carers rights and of those with mental health needs.
