IFoA social care policy briefing series


During the past couple of decades, successive governments have made numerous attempts to reform the UK’s social care system, but funding remains under extreme and constant pressure. The current government publishes its long-awaited green paper this autumn. To coincide with this, the IFoA has released the first in a five-part social care briefing series entitled The State of Play.

These briefings aim to help inform debate around the options put forward by the government. The series will cover topics ranging from the means test to financial products and solutions that can be used to pay for care. The final briefing will provide an international viewpoint from other countries that have found themselves in similar predicaments.
