Public Policy Projects’ State of the Nation report: The future of social care: Turning rhetoric into reality

July 2021

Public Policy Projects’ State of the Nation report, The future of social care: Turning rhetoric into reality, calls for a “1948 moment” for social care following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Focusing on four key areas: Integration, Innovation, Funding and Infrastructure the report makes a series of recommendations to the government for social care reform; emphasising the need to build a resilient, fully resourced and integrated social care system with providers at the heart of decision making.

Public Policy Projects also highlight the importance of older people’s housing to the future of social care and calls for a new planning classification and a Housing-with-Care Task Force to support the development of retirement communities.

Anchor Hanover were a co-sponsor of the report and provided research material to inform the recommendations; including case studies and our previous report findings.
