EVENTS:

Care

The Actuarial Profession, Staple Inn Hall, High Holborn, London WC1V 7QJ, 09:30, 18 October 2011

Following the publication of the Dilnot Report, this event explored the future of care.

Since 2008, the International Longevity Centre-UK has been at the forefront of the debate on the future funding of long-term care. Our proposals for a social insurance-based National Care Fund and the development of a private market in care insurance were extremely influential on the development of policy under the previous Government.

The Commission on Funding of Care and Support has been tasked by the Government to review of the funding system for care and support in England. Andrew Dilnot, the Commission Chair expects to report in July 2011.

In 2011, ILC-UK organised a seminar series with Partnership to explore some of the outstanding issues ahead of the publication of the Dilnot Commission report. Our activities will culminate in the autumn of this year when we will hold a day conference for up to 100 opinion formers and decision makers at the Actuarial Profession premises in Holborn. This conference, supported by Partnership, took place on 18 October 2011, after the publication of the Dilnot Commission, but before the Government formally responds to the recommendations.

Whilst the conference was free to attend, we charged a £50 fee if registered participants do not attend on the day, or do not provide 7 days cancellation notice.
