On 1 April, CSCI will launch an online survey, which will seek views and experiences from the public, people who use care services and all interested parties including council representatives, providers, voluntary and community organisations. This survey will be on our website until 9 May. Anyone with an interest in social care can also send us written submissions with their ideas for change.

Also on 1 April, we are holding a national event, which will aim to encourage debate between people who use services, carers, stakeholders' representatives, providers and councils on flaws in the current system and how a fairer system might look in future.
