Strategic Society Centre issues Dilnot response

‘The First Step? A response to the Commission on Funding of Care and Support’ explores:

• Why is it necessary for the state to provide protection against the catastrophic costs of long-term care?

• What will the 'capped cost' model mean for how local authorities assess need and allocate resources?

• How will the design of the 'capped cost' model determine the use of financial products in the social care system?

The government has committed to producing a new social care White Paper by April 2012, and the aim of the report is to encourage stakeholders and policymakers to explore and refine the framework proposed by the Commission.

The Centre's full response and a summary of the proposals can be found here.
