Tackling a “Care Deficit” in public services

ACEVO, the chief executives body, has launched a Commission on the role the third sector should play in future public service delivery. The Remaking the State Commission is co-chaired by academic and commentator Will Hutton and Rob Owen, chief executive of the offender rehabilitation charity St Giles Trust.

It will focus on systemic failures in public services that led to crises such as that at Winterbourne View care home, and will inquire how the sector can make a difference in the provision of a wide range of public services.
