Attitudes to funding social care

Attitudes to funding social care

Large proportions of the general population do not think about social care, including the possibility that they themselves might need support at some stage. Very few people have therefore thought about preparing financially or in other ways for their future social care needs. 

Existing evidence on the public’s views towards different funding mechanisms is relatively limited. Research led by the Policy Innovation & Evaluation Research Unit (PIRU) across LSHTM and LSE looked at public attitudes to different options for funding social care in England, in the context of an ageing population. (view project details)
