Funding social care: what service users say – JRF Finding


Funding social care: what service users say – JRF Finding

Service users often aren’t involved in discussions about social care funding, yet they will be most affected by any changes to the current failing system.

In 2009, 18 adult social care service users were brought together to explore proposals for funding social care in the future. This Viewpoint reports their views, including:

  • Service users feel that a false divide between social care and health care is perpetuated by conflicting funding arrangements.
  • Almost all service users consulted think general taxation is the best way to fund social care.
  • Service users reject any withdrawal of existing universal disability benefits, such as the Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance, to fund means and needs tested social care.

Lets move away from puerile Party Politics [lacking common-sense] to the pure Politics for the People by the People. Vote with your conscience for the one with conscience in your Parliament – The Independents.
