A short history of social care funding

Page updated 
Comments: 5

The question of how to pay for social care has occupied substantial political, policy, media and campaigning activity in the past 20 years. There have been four independent reviews, five consultations, seven White and Green Papers and innumerable reports from think tanks, charities and other organisations.

This timeline shows policy developments about the social care funding system in England from 1996 to 2017. The timeline up to 2013 can also be found in our paper: Paying for social care: Beyond Dilnot

I cannot access the presentation at all as the section under Watch the Prezi is completely blank!

Hi Jo What are you using to view the prezi? Is it on IPad, phone, desktop? If you're using an IPad/IPhone you'll need to download the free prezi app to view, which you can download here: http://prezi.com/ipad/ Thanks Sarah

A really useful and informative presentation - is it possible to download it as I am concerned that as it is cloud based it may disappear!

Great presentation but how far further have we come in acknowledging more people need care and need their independence and, despite near breakthroughs with Self Directed Support and Individual Budgets, the funding allocated still seems universally accepted to fall short.
