9 Social care is responding to demographic pressures and changing attitudes: By 2025, a quarter of the entire adult population will be over 65 Projected % of England's adult population aged 65 and over There are now 17 million baby boomers marching towards retirement with a high set of demands and a clear expectation of what they want in retirement… (Age Concern 2004) And expectations of public services will rise

10 There are several major challenges facing adult social care Funding target to those most in need Little public understanding of the funding system Little public awareness of the need to save Inequalities in access caused by local eligibility criteria Variable standards amongst providers Low skilled and low paid workforce

11 One system to drive reform, which will benefit all users of services: Better LA commissioning will strengthen the market in local areas, benefiting all people Inspection will judge how everyone experiences care services Better information and mechanisms such as direct payments will help users to shape services Everyone will benefit from better trained staff across the profession, and the development of new technologies Privately funded and State funded users will follow slightly different routes through a single system. Many of the reforms will address the needs of both groups of users Strengthening performance management Shaping and building the market Better care and support Increasing capability People Shaping the Service from Below
