How will the proposed reforms rebuild our social care system? - CAREAWARE COMMENT

The cost of fixing our social care is generally accepted as being £10 billion a year. Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid said yesterday that “The tax increases announced will raise £36 billion over the next three years and of this £5.4 billion will be allocated to social care.”

At less than 20% of the estimated cost, and only 15% of the money raised, the allocation to social care looks to fall well short of what would be required to make a real difference.
