Funding tomorrow's care – Practical implications of the Dilnot Commission proposals

On July 2010 the Government set up the independent Commission on Funding of Care and Support, chaired by Andrew Dilnot, to develop solutions on how to 'achieve an affordable and sustainable funding system for care and support, for all adults in England, both in the home and other settings.'

On 4 July, the 'Dilnot Commission' published its proposed model - a hybrid between private provision, with individual contribution to care capped between £25,000 and £50,000, and the state supporting any care costs above this cap.

Our latest Talking Points publication, 'Funding tomorrow's care: practical implications of the Dilnot Commission proposals', outlines what actions the government, the financial services industry and others interested in social care reform would need to take to implement the Commission's vision.
