Saving Social Care: The Case For Funding & Reform

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and Independent Age are delighted to invite you to an event on social care funding. This will take place on Wednesday 14th, 17.00-19.00 at Church House Westminster, Deans Yard, Westminster, London, SW1P 3NZ.

This June, IPPR published The Lord Darzi Review of Health and Care. The review set out a vision for the future of health and care which included recommendations for both additional funding and reform.

At the heart of the Darzi Review was a recommendation for free adult personal care, as a way of providing high quality care for everyone in old age and creating a more integrated health and care system.

This autumn the Government will publish a Green Paper on social care, setting out its strategy on securing better and substantive care going forward. As part of this ongoing, our two organisations will be presenting some ground-breaking work on social care funding to make the case for change and options for further investment.

Speakers include:

  • Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester
  • Lord David Prior, Chair of NHS England
  • Christina McAnea, Assistant General Secretary, UNISON
  • Janet Morrison, Chief Executive, Independent Age
  • Chair: Harry Quilter-Pinner, Senior Research Fellow, IPPR
