This book outlines a new model for public services that offer long-term support to adults, based on the overarching goal of achieving and maintaining wellbeing, rather than only reacting to crisis or attempting to 'fix' people. This approach would both ask of us and offer us more, with responsibilities, resources, and risks more fairly and transparently shared. The book concludes with steps which we all – citizens, front line services, and government – could take to achieve this vision.
