Likely questions

  • Can you explain how the proposed 'Universal Care Entitlement' would work?
  • The "Fixing the Care Crisis" report says that the Universal Care Entitlement will provide a ‘good’ level of care. What does 'good' mean and how will this be delivered?
  • Can you explain how the proposed Care Supplement would work?
  • Your report recommends shifting responsibility for social care funding from councils to Whitehall. Are you surprised that the Government says it is not looking at doing this?
  • Why do you think social care has been such a difficult issue for successive governments to make political progress on?
  • Practically, how should political parties go about building consensus on social care policy?
