Reforming social care: options for funding [UK] – Nuffield Trust – 29 May 2012

Policy response
by Anita Charlesworth and Ruth Thorlby

“The Government is expected to publish a White Paper on the future of social care in 2012. The White Paper will set out the  Government’s response to the recommendations from the Law Commission on reform of adult social care legislation (Law Commission, 2011) and the Dilnot Commission review of funding for adult social care (Commission on Funding of Care and Support, 2011). There is a risk that reform of funding will be neglected: the forthcoming White Paper is expected to include proposals for the reform of adult social care following the Law Commission’s report on modernising the legislative framework, but the Government has only committed itself to ‘a progress report on funding reform’ (Lansley, 2011). This paper examines the current level of funding of social care and the Dilnot Commission’s recommendations and suggests ways of funding a fairer, more sustainable system of social care.”
