Time to end the older and disabled person’s poll tax: Stop charging for care services

If health care is free at the point of need then so should social care needs. It is the older and disabled person’s poll tax.

The long-term costs of failing to invest now will be far greater for the millions of people who rely on social care at present and those who will in the future. Without good quality support, many people will see their physical and mental health deteriorate.

Please support this e-petition to campaign for a free national care service that meets people’s needs equally and fairly, and is funded out of general taxation.

Service charges for social care to be abolished in England and Wales
If health care such as medicines are free at the point of need then so should social care needs. It is the disabled person’s poll tax.
