Robert Kilgour has set up a care foundation to help improve the experience of residents, carers and families.

The Social Care Foundation is a UK-wide, cross-party think tank and pressure group focused on driving urgent and meaningful social care reform. It will look to encourage debate, ideas and suggestions on how best to reform the sector.

Kilgour, founder and chair, said the sector cannot continue as it is. ‘The Social Care Foundation has been set up on a non-political basis to improve the experience of residents, carers and families by harnessing talent and expertise from right across the sector,’ he said.

‘We are in the process of establishing an expert advisory board to help shape this vital work and establish clear strategic priorities to ensure that The Social Care Foundation can make a positive and effective contribution to one of the biggest challenges which faces our society today.’
