Funding challenges of the social care system in England

Our response the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee inquiry

We outlined our research behind the funding challenges for social care in England.

We separated our response into five sections that addressed the following questions:

  • What are the funding challenges for social care in England, and how can they be overcome?
  • Why have successive governments been reluctant to address challenges in the delivery of social care?
  • How can a sustainable funding model for social care supported by a diverse and stable market be created?
  • How can the cost of the provision of social care be fairly distributed?
  • What lessons can be learnt from elsewhere in the UK, or from other countries, in how they approach social care?
