- *Securing Good Care for Older People: Taking a long-term view, the King’s Fund commissioned report into the future of social care funding by Sir Derek Wanless, was published in March 2006.
- The Fund was part of Caring Choices, a coalition of 15 organisations from across the long-term care system that sought to gather the views of older people, carers and others with direct experience of the system on how care should best be funded in the future. Throughout 2007, the coalition engaged with more than 700 individuals at a series of consultation events across England and Scotland and through an interactive website. The final report was published on 7 January 2008 and is available as a free download at www.caringchoices.org.uk
