Two thirds 'don't save for care'

25th January 2008

A survey carried out by leading charities has suggested that two thirds of people have no plans to put money aside for care they will need when they are older.

The survey among 1,000 people, by the charities Help the Aged, Carers UK and Counsel and Care, found that people would turn to family and friends for help rather than pay privately or ask a local council. The charities want changes in the social care system. The government is currently planning a public consultation on social care with a green paper setting out proposals to follow.
