Social care: how the postponed changes to paying for care, including the cap, would have worked (England)
22 July 2015From April 2016, a more generous means-test, the introduction of a cap of social care costs and the broadening of those eligible for first party top-ups are planned to be introduced, under plans set out by the previous Government.
Social care: Delayed introduction of funding reform, including the cap, and other changes until April 2020
22 July 2015The Government announced that it would delay reform of social care funding, including the introduction of a cap on social care costs and a more generous means-test, by four years from April 2016 to April 2020.
22 July 2015The Government raised the cap on tuition fees for new student to 9,000 in 2012/13 and cut most ongoing direct public funding for tuition in England. This shifted the balance of higher education funding further away from the state and further towards the individual who benefits. Students can take out publicly subsided student loans to pay these higher fees. There is uncertainty about the final size of this subsidy and the Governments estimate of it has increased considerably since the reforms were first announced. This also affects the size of any saving in public expenditure and the extent of the shift in costs from the state to the individual beneficiary.
