A blueprint for social care reform is calling for higher wages for care workers, including a new minimum wage for those who work in adult social care of £11.45 an hour.
A Fabian Society report says a Labour government should commit to 10 years of care reform and increased funding. The report also says greater regulation of care home providers is necessary.
The Labour-affiliated think tank came up with the proposals, which would apply to England, for the shadow health secretary Wes Streeting and the health service union Unison.
But the report says very little about capping the costs of social care - an issue that has been kicked into the political long grass for years.
