Madeleine Bunting: The Crisis of Care

Covid-19 has exposed the crisis of care in the UK and revealed a system at breaking point. With austerity dismantling the welfare state, an ageing population, and a society continually bent on pursuing economic growth and consumerism, the stage was set for this crisis.  

Join prize-winning author and journalist Madeleine Bunting to hear why she believes we need a radical reassessment of the many vital forms of care on which we all depend.   

In conversation with Anoosh Chakelian, New Statesman’s Britain editor.
