RECLAIM the Public Nature of Care

Caroline Othim, Global Alliance for Tax Justice, explains why we must RECLAIM the public nature of Care, one of the 5Rs of our joint Care Manifesto: Rebuilding the Social Organisation of Care

Every day, everywhere around the world we - women and girls - care for family, for friends, and for people in our communities. At some point in our lives we all need extra care – whether because of a disability, mental or physical ill health, or plain old age. But providing care services - and accessing them - has been made much more difficult since the pandemic struck. Sometimes care facilities are not there for those who need them, or only open to those who have money or privilege.
