The Care in Crisis public meeting was organised by Another Edinburgh is Possible on 4th March 2023. Most attendees were online but there were also in person groups at the Wester Hailes Wellbeing Centre and the Trade Unions in Communities Hub in Craigmillar.
The report includes four videos and a powerpoint that includes ideas for future action.
In this first video Elizabeth Hayden, social care worker and Unite health and safety rep talks about the crisis.
Elizabeth Hayden was followed by a contribution from the Wester Hailes Community Wellbeing Collective . You can follow the collective on Facebook and on Instagram.
Following the Wellbeing Collective we heard from Linda and Caroline, two carers who are active in the End Poverty in Edinburgh group
Finally we heard from Nick Kempe who talked about the origins of the crisis and what a properly resourced and democratically controlled care service could look like.
Here are Nick’s slides which support his talk and include some ideas for action at the end.
