My name is Nadra Ahmed I'm the Executive Chairman of the National Care Association.

Our role as an organisation is primarily to try and work with government to support our providers.

I think it's important to probably stress that social care is a very complex knit of services and there will be different avenues you can explore. So social services, for example, the local authority should be able to guide you through this this maze of the funding scenarios. I think it's also, there are organisations like SOLLA, for example, who are independent financial advisers who will look at the best possible way of going forward to support you through giving you the financial advice.

What you've got available on this site is you've got real experiences. You’ve got the experiences somebody who's in care, but you've also got people talking about how they felt when they first came to the subject and not knowing what to do. So, I think it is a resource that it's well worth exploring and almost looking down at every facet of it to try and glean as much information as you can, because nothing, nothing at all, is better than an informed decision.

You know, it's not just about one person. Sometimes there's, there are family decisions, and this is a resource that can be shared. And there are snippets in it that you might think ‘that's really useful because when you are having a family conversation that was raised, and we can do that’. And actually, with the clips that are there, you can also show them to the individual who might be receiving care or may be looking at this, because that might just help them to think through what's going on out there and help them and reassure them as well. So, many ways to use the resource.
