This paper sets out new research and bold policy proposals which aim to address the growing crisis in social care. In line with IPPR's charitable objectives, its recommendations aim to improve the efficiency of health and social care services in England by joining up health and social care policy and delivering a more preventative model of care. They also aim to advance the physical and mental health of those with social care needs by ensuring that everyone – regardless of means – receives adequate and appropriate support.
