Reforms for 2025

Labour is still committed to implementing the cap on care costs and related reforms to adult social care charging, according to Shadow minister for social care Andrew Gwynne.


He said, should the party win the forthcoming election, it would “seek to introduce” the changes first conceived of by economist Andrew Dilnot in a 2011 report for the then coalition government.


The current government is also committed to introducing the reforms, in October 2025, two years later than originally planned.
