Inquiry into long term funding of adult social care

06 February 2018

Inquiry into long term funding of adult social careThe Communities and Local Government and Health Committees have launched an inquiry into the long-term funding and provision of adult social care, following widespread concerns over sustainability. The results will feed into a forthcoming green paper on adult social care.

The scope of the inquiry is twofold:

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

Implications for practice

Practitioners are encouraged to respond in writing to the consultation. Submissions should be received by the 7 March 2018.
