The Government announced on 17 November 2021 its proposals on how the social care cap, which is the limit on the amount that adults can be required to pay towards eligible care costs over their lifetime, will work and its timetable for consultation on these proposals.

The Government has announced the start of a period of ‘co-production of the statutory guidance with the sector’ which, as we understand it, will be based on the draft regulations and guidance published in 2015.
