Fixing the Care CrisisFixing the Care Crisis

Former Cabinet minister Rt Hon Damian Green MP has proposed that the care system should adopt, in the long term, the model of the state pension, with the Government providing a new Universal Care Entitlement, with an optional top up from savings or housing wealth via a Care Supplement. Shorter term funding pressures should be met by taxing winter fuel allowance, diverting savings from the Spending Review or as a last resort a 1% National Insurance surcharge on over 50s.

Paper issued by the Institute for Policy Studies, in advance of the Government's Green Paper on adult social care.
