Responding to today’s announcement on social care funding, Baroness Sally Greengross, Chief Executive of the International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK)  said:

"These measures are an important first step in the right direction. The ageing of the UK population means that both the number of people needing care, and the cost of providing it, are increasing. Spending on long term care is projected to rise between 2016/17 and 2061/62 by £14bn in today’s money.

The announcement will help individuals and families who are currently hit hardest by the ever growing cost of care.  Yet social care is in crisis today and too many people get inadequate care and support. The problem isn’t just a long term one – for the sake of today’s care recipients, we must also work to address the current crisis.

It has taken many years of policy interest in this area to make this progress. The next steps are critical.”


The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) and Just Group have analysed the submissions and created a shortlist to take forward that helps deal with ageing issues such as cognitive decline, failing physical health, loneliness and digital exclusion.

We are looking for an experienced, flexible and proactive candidate to support the Senior Management Team in managing the financials of the organisation.
