Intersecting needs and rights: Participants, workers and carers in marketised support

A SYMPOSIUM HOSTED BY THE SOCIAL SUPPORT AND PRECARIOUS WORK RESEARCH DISCUSSION GROUP (SS&PW)

In contested spaces of marketised service delivery in social care, the need to develop and engage in discussions on stakeholder rights has emerged as a critical issue. How can the rights of each stakeholder be realised in a way that recognises and accommodates the diverse needs and interests and vulnerabilities of other stakeholders within such a landscape? This symposium for PhD and Early Career Researchers working in the fields of disability and mental health support and aged care is aimed at developing a more robust and innovative conversation about points of intersection for people who require care and support, and those who provide care and support in a paid and unpaid capacity.
