Last year, we announced an additional £5.4 billion over three years to begin a comprehensive social care reform programme.

This includes £3.6 billion to reform the social care charging system protecting everybody from unlimited and unfair costs and £1.7 billion to begin major improvements across the social care system.

In December we published a white paper that set out our 10-year vision for reforming adult social care and our priorities for that investment.

This includes at least £500 million investment to support the development and wellbeing of the social care workforce, a £300 million investment in increasing the range of supported housing and £150 million to improve technology and digital records.
