Our Approach: Ethics of Care

Our approach is situated within an ethic of care framework.

A key strength of care ethics is its relevance to applied contexts and the significance it attributes to the experiential knowledge of those receiving care.

Our approach emphasises the epistemic significance of those who receive care drawing on an alternative language offered by care ethics from that based in managerial and consumerist discourse.

Our approach also reflects the relationality of care by exploring different perspectives on self-funding (lay carers such as family or friends, commissioners, providers) and taking account of the relationships between different stakeholders.
