This report explores what the left’s agenda should be for older people’s care, support, independence and wellbeing. We asked our contributors to consider the offer politicians should make on the services and entitlements older people need to live well; the priorities they should adopt with respect to the development, reform and integration of different forms of support; and the potential funding solutions to pay for comprehensive, high-quality support in the context of rising demand.
The report also presents new Fabian Society research findings on the true costs of funding support and care in England both now and in the future.
With contributions from Barbara Keeley MP, Andrew Harrop, David Walker, Lord Filkin, Dame Clare Tickell, Heather Wakefield, Caroline Abrahams, Helena Herklots, Eileen Burns, Jim McMahon MP and Linda Thomas.
