Government launches major consultation on the future of care and support


The Government has launched a major consultation exercise on the future of care and support to identify the priorities the Government needs to focus on to improve the care and support system.

The consultation (Caring for our future: shared ambitions for care and support) was launched yesterday, 15th September and will run until early December.

The aim is to produce a Government White Paper on social care reform and a progress report on funding reform that will be published in spring 2012.
