Policy making on support and care for older people in England needs a fresh start. At the beginning of the parliamentary cycle and with government and opposition reviewing their policy, politicians on the left should think boldly from first principles.
This paper provides evidence, analysis and a proposed policy direction to help in that task. Its focus is the organisation and funding of support rather than the development of frontline practice. Its remit is support for older people, but solutions are also required for younger disabled people and new answers must work for both age-groups.
