Social care for adults aged 18–64 Report

Focusing on social care for younger adults in England, this Health Foundation analysis explores system context – what does the social care system for younger adults look like; care needs – what care needs do younger adults have and how are these changing; system performance – how well does the social care system care for younger adults and their carers; and outcomes – what outcomes do younger adults in the social care system and their unpaid carers have?

The report concludes that policies to improve and reform adult social care will not be successful unless they understand and address the needs of younger adults, who must not be forgotten in the policy debate about social care.
