National Voices’ Response to Government announcements
National Voices gives two cheers to government announcements on social care funding and flags further action needed on social care.
Jeremy Taylor, Chief Executive of National Voices, says:
“This will be a first step forward in social care funding. It doesn’t happen until after the next election. We are disappointed the government has gone for such a high cap to the amount individuals will have to pay for their own care. The rise in means-tested thresholds is better news for those on lower incomes.
“We need continued work across the political spectrum to develop this initial offer and communicate it clearly to the public”
