Social Care Demographics and Pressure Points

This short paper summarises a lecture given by Professor Keith Moultrie to a Community Exchange Seminar run by Oxford Brookes University and Oxfordshire Council for Voluntary Associations on 8 March 2012. The paper focuses on the social care of older people in England, and its purpose is to:

  • Explore the changing population demographics across the country.
  • Consider the potential implications for social care and related health and welfare services.
  • Consider the policy response to date and how it might develop further.

The views are those of the author, but draw upon the work of The Institute of Public Care at Oxford Brookes University over the last 25 years.
