An ageing society means that we need to reach a longer-term sustainable settlement for social care. This is why the Government has committed to publishing a Social Care Green Paper setting out its proposals for reform. The Green Paper will cover a range of issues including funding, workforce, carers and commissioning. It is right that social care funding is agreed alongside the rest of the local government settlement at the forthcoming spending review.
