In response to the government's social care funding statement, Chief Executive of Turning Point, Lord Victor Adebowale said;

"This is a step in the right direction but we need to address the fact that the cap has been set at £75,000, much higher than Dilnot's original recommendations. For many people we support this is an insurmountable amount of money.

We also need to ensure that those who currently and urgently need help with social care get the support they need - if you are struggling to make ends meet, four years is a lifetime."
