The Caring for our future engagement has now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part by submitting comments or attending events. The Department of Health will be continuing to work with the appointed discussion leaders and their reference group members to develop policy recommendations for the White Paper and the progress report on funding that will be published in spring 2012.

The feedback that has been collected from the care and support sector and the public between 15 September and 2 December will be used to help the Government understand the immediate and longer-term priorities for social care reform, and will inform this policy development and decisions. Do keep in touch with us via the Caring for our future mailbox or via this website, and your comments will be passed onto the relevant policy teams at the Department of Health.

Further updates will be published here or on the Department of Health website as soon as they’re available
