Having briefly reviewed current calls for fundamental change within adult social care, this report has sought to explore the potential social and economic benefits of future reform. Rather than viewing spending on adult social care as essentially ‘dead money’, there is scope to re-conceptualise this as a form of social and economic investment – meeting basic needs and providing more of a rights-based approach, but also investing to save via greater prevention/rehabilitation and delivering significant wider benefits for society and the economy by providing better support to users and carers.
