How Boris Johnson’s care system reform will affect families – 13 key questions answered

The Daily Mirror: Boris Johnson’s manifesto-breaking plan to reform social care will be the biggest shake-up of the sector for 60 years.

But the proposals have left many who receive care, or who have loved ones who do, confused and worried about what they will mean.

Here, Prof Catherine Needham, Professor of Public Policy at the University of Birmingham and Associate Director of the National Institute for Health Research’s School for Social Care, answers the important questions…

Q. What will happen if someone is assessed as having care needs but has assets of less than £20,000? And what about those with between £20,000 and £100,000?

A. If a local council decides that someone meets the eligibility criteria for having care needs and has assets of less than £20,000 then the state will pay for their care. For people with assets from £20,000 to £100,000 there will be a sliding scale of state contributions, but we don’t know yet exactly how this will work.
