Back to Care

Return To News releases & statements


Back to Care is the Department of Health and Social Care’s second roadmap document, setting out the next steps for those care services that were suspended, reduced or altered during the Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

It is a companion document to Back to Health, published two weeks ago, and outlines pathways to reinstate the diverse services that come under the heading of social care. These include Adult Social Care and our Children and Families division. Together they are responsible for a diversity of provision, including Older People's Services, Dementia Care, Services for Adults with a Learning Disability, child protection, looked after children, children with a disability and youth justice.
