This article is an interesting take on the social care funding crisis. It will in part with funded with tax rises for the self- employed.  Whilst everyone should contribute to funding public services , let's hope its not those working in low paid jobs in the care system who inadvertently are caught by this.  Also £1bilion seems a lot on average its £6.6m per council and given some are overspending on adult social care budgets by £10m plus then whilst a £billion is welcome it will need to be sustained into the future.
