Scenario planning – the future of social care

14 October 2015

We need positive self-fulfilling prophecies

Every year at NCASC we expect insight – particularly from service users and around frontline change. We also expect a fair dose of platitudes.

  • Integration – but how?
  • Inspection – monitor or problem-solving partner?
  • Innovation – but without risk?
  • Is social care about a last-ditch safety net or loneliness and social engagement?
  • Who’s responsible – government, local government, society?

This year, we decided to run our accelerated scenario planning process to help people really get beneath the skin of the question:

what will social care look like in 2020?

We have now published the first draft of our live, crowd-sourced #socialcare2020 scenario plans.

What does the future hold?

  • a providers' market?
  • reacting or responding?
  • managing 'beyond the edge of chaos'?
  • turning the Titanic?

CLICK HERE for the scenarios.

It is not too late to contribute though - do you like the names for our scenarios? Do they ring true?

Come to stand BL24 (upstairs in the speakers’ corner area) to vote on:

•The most likely scenario
•The worst scenario
•The best scenario
•The three things we can do to avoid the worst
•One thing we can do to encourage the best!
