The Green Paper Consultation:
After the publication of “The Case for Change – Why England Needs a New Care and Support System”, a document launching a large-scale public debate on whether there is a case for changing the current system, argued for a new system, and set out the issues and trade-offs this would mean, they turned to the public for feedback via the Care and Support website, to produce a Green Paper.
“Once the Green Paper is published the Government will consult again, stakeholders and the public will again get the opportunity to respond to the models and ideas put forward, and test our ideas as we look towards putting them into practice”
Timespan: Started May 2008 – November 2009.
The website, which offers a range of information and news, offered a map showing local stakeholder meetings and offered means to submit comments on-line.
