Abstract:
This report on long-term care provision policies, from a series on the impact of 10 years devolved government in the United Kingdom, considers the constraint that tax and benefit structure (control of which remains centrally within the Departmental Expenditure Limits (DEL) system), has on Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England.

The importance of having secondary social care, funded from Annually Managed Expenditure by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and less bound to annual budgets than DEL, in minimising diversity of delivered care is discussed.

The inability of devolved governments to steer DWP, due to weak intergovernmental relations, is highlighted and in section 2 Scottish attendance allowances and Welsh domiciliary care charges are contrasted. Section 3 details demand for care varies more within countries than between them, while section 4 highlights divergence in older people’s ability to pay.

A current snapshot of care provision across the UK in section 5, is followed by a focus on free personal care, personalisation and charging in Section 6. Section 7 reiterates that policies can be constrained as well as enhanced by devolution.

Other reports, in this series, detail area based regeneration, indicators of poverty and social exclusion, employment and employability and housing and homelessness.
