Bill, who's 90

The Government still hasn’t published its plan to improve social care. This delay is costing older people the care and dignity they deserve.

700 days ago the Government announced it would publish a Green Paper on social care. But since then it’s been delayed 6 times.

In those 700 days, more than 54,000 older people have died waiting for their care to begin.

We need the Green Paper now, so that we can stop older people in the UK struggling on without the help they need.
