The King’s Fund position on adult social care is available online. Work conducted by the King’s Fund and the Health Foundation found that, when social care funding choices are made clear to the public, most believe that the bulk of new funding to pay for a reformed system should come from central government.
Recent analysis by The King’s Fund found that many supermarkets pay higher average hourly wages than care work.
For more statistics on the social care system, see Social Care 360, published by The King’s Fund earlier this year.
