The Green Paper on social care will set out our vision for improving care and support for all adults. It will reflect key principles such as the importance of supporting people to live as independently as possible and putting people in control of their care and support.

The Green Paper remains a priority for the Government. We are continuing to work on it closely, taking the time to consult with key stakeholders and take their feedback into consideration. As such, it will be published at the earliest opportunity.
