Latest social care funding proposals June 2018

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
This BBC report has links to the full report which is interesting reading
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-44621047

I've only skimmed it BUT it includes
Reform of council tax and bands
Extra inheritance tax
New social care tax at at least 1%
and using social funds to pay family carers, but doesn't say at what rate.

Please others read it too, am sure there more bad than good but it's late and I must sleep
A regurgitation of the recent Independent article posted unde rthe CARERS STRATEGY thread :

https://www.carersuk.org/forum/support- ... 9?start=10

Just part of a whole host of ideas before the Green Paper is finally announced.

The " Family Carers " element would be the use of the new " Social Care Insurance Premium Scheme ( SCIPS ) " monies ... no further indication of how that would work.

As for the SCIPS idea . the aforementioned CS thread contains my initial view of it ... especially on the timing element if ever it got off the ground.

Asks the question ... " If started on Day One , when will any monies be payable thereunder ? "
