Older people’s care and housing charity, Anchor have found that only 14% of people aged over 55 are confident that the Government will be able to solve the current social care crisis.

 

50% of the people asked thought the care system is now in crisis due to the failings of the Coalition Government and only 6% believe the quality of social care has improved under the Coalition.

Sadly a huge 66% of older people believe MP’s ignore older people’s issues altogether. Anchor is calling on the Government to listen to the public voice, and ensure that the social care reforms reflect the needs of our ageing society.

This all comes ahead of the highly anticipated release of the social care white paper.
