Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee

Long term funding of adult social care inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Accepting written submissions; the deadline is Wednesday 7 March 2018.

Scope of the inquiry

Social care provision and funding has been the subject of numerous reports, commissions and Government papers over many years. Despite agreement on the urgent need for reform, this has not translated into action or consensus on how it should be achieved.

Ahead of the Government's Green Paper, the Communities and Local Government Committee and the Health Committee are holding a short inquiry to identify funding reforms which will command broad consensus, and which will enable the Government to make swift and tangible progress in this area. Bearing this in mind, submissions are invited from organisations and individuals on the following terms:

  • How to fund social care sustainably for the long term (beyond 2020), bearing in mind in particular the interdependence of the health and social care systems; and
  • The mechanism for reaching political and public consensus on a solution.
