Care England has appointed Jonathan Gardam as senior policy officer.
Ann Mackay MBE, director of policy at Care England, says: "Jonathan's experience at ADASS and various local authorities provides a great insight into the challenges and opportunities facing providers particularly when stakes and expectations are so high. His brief will focus on funding and costs; key issues for our members".
Jonathan joined Care England in May and has been concentrating on a funding matrix for local authorities across the country. The general election and forthcoming Green Paper on social care will be key parts of his work stream.
Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive of Care England says: "We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to the Care England team. His appointment enables Care England to strengthen our capacity and understanding of local governments".
