“The poorest will be hit hardest by latest social care rethink”

Care Costs The Telegraph 17th Nov 2021

Who said that? Sir Andrew Dilnot who had devised reforms to prevent people losing their homes.

Eorann Lean at Age UK emailed to thank those of us who wrote to our MPs asking them to oppose the Government’s changes to the cap on care costs.

She said, “Sadly, the Government were determined to get their changes through and they “whipped the vote” making it very difficult for any Conservative MP to vote against it.

“I’m bitterly disappointed. Changing how the cap on care costs works has made it unfair. Those with low and modest wealth are going to be the most affected, and over 4 in 5 older people won’t see any benefit from the care cap. The Prime Minister made a promise to fix care and he is now failing to live up to his word.”

Age UK will keep on campaigning for pensioners.
