The adequate provision of social care is a major issue facing the UK. A near crisis has been triggered by the failures of privatised provision, aggravated by the austerity inflicted upon the NHS. However, it is not just a question of providing enough care but also about developing new and different forms of care. People’s expectations of living longer lives affects how they want care to be delivered. Increasingly people want care delivered at home or locally in the community in a personalised way. This briefing sets out the key components of a National Care Service.

What policy would provide adequate social care for Britain?
