ADASS President’s speech to the National Children and Adult Services Conference, 4th November 2020

This morning James Bullion, ADASS President addressed the opening session of the virtual NCASC 2020 conference, which takes over the next three days.  He used his speech to thank those colleagues working in social care who have worked tirelessly over the last six months to ensure that others receive the care and support they needed. He paid particular tribute to those social care colleagues who have ‘paid the ultimate price in their selfless dedication to supporting others’, noting that ‘their sacrifice will never be forgotten’.

He also underlined the urgent need for further support for social care during what will be an extremely difficult winter and called on the Government to urgently bring forward its proposals for reform which will sort out social care ‘for all, once and for all’.
