White Paper, White Lies- Social Care Forgotten?

May 9, 2012 | By | Reply More

Despite promises of a white paper on social care to appear this spring, today’s speech offered little sign of hope that a decision on funding will be made soon.

Jane Ashcroft CEO of Anchor responds to the Queens speech;

“Anchor research found one in four people are unaware that care is means-tested yet the current broken system means many people face an almost limitless drain on their savings.”
“A failure to reform the system now would be nothing less than a betrayal of the public. The older people of today and tomorrow deserve better than the current shambolic funding system and we call on Mr Cameron to act.”
