Experts questioned on long-term funding of adult social care

26 March 2018

The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee and Health and Social Care Committee question representatives from charities and policy experts as part of the inquiry into the long-term funding of adult social care.

Sustainable system needed

The session is likely to focus on the challenges faced by the social care system and how much extra funding is needed. MPs could also ask about the links between health and social care and how best to fund a sustainable system.

The Committees have published written evidence submitted as part of the inquiry. More than 180 submissions have now been published from local authorities, charities, policy organisations and individuals.

The Government has confirmed its intention to present a Green Paper containing proposals to reform care and support for older people before the summer recess.

The inquiry seeks to identify funding reforms that will command broad consensus to allow progress in ensuring the long-term sustainability of both the health and care systems.
