Commenting on the Local Government Association's proposals for social care, George McNamara, Director of Policy and Influencing at Independent Age, the older people’s charity, says:

“This is another damning indictment of a system in crisis, leaving thousands of older people every day without the care they so desperately need. Social care is suffering from chronic underfunding, so we welcome the LGA’s calls for more investment, especially, in prevention and public health. The government’s own green paper must also focus on ensuring that older people are supported to live the lives they want, independently, and on their own terms.”
