This report examines six themes dominating discussions on social care right now – demand; funding and responsibility; quality; integrated care; technology; and sustainability.

Together with Independent Age’s own thought leadership in these areas, this report weaves in ideas, suggestions and questions raised and examined by blog contributors.

Independent Age hosted roundtable events at both Labour and Conservative party conferences in autumn 2017, with discussion topics based on strong themes and questions raised by bloggers. This enabled further rich debate and exploration of the long-term options and reforms needed to ensure that the social care system can sustainably deliver high-quality care to all older people who need it.
