Debate about the future of social care often focuses on funding – how will it be paid for? As the much-awaited green paper approaches, in this briefing we have collected and reviewed the different funding proposals put forward over the last two decades. It is clear they are numerous and varied, but how will they work?
The collection not only describes what the different options are, it analyses the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, in line with our key principles of what should be central to any funding system for social care.
