Abstract

Sanna Read, Raphael Wittenberg, and Nicholas Mays summarise research carried out by a team from the Policy Innovation and Evaluation Research Unit (a collaboration between LSE’s Care Policy and Evaluation Centre and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) examining whether people think social care should be funded by the state, or whether service users should continue to contribute to the cost. They find that three out of four want the state to contribute more but the user to continue to pay at least for some of the social care costs.
