Adult social care charging reform: minimum viable product (MVP) software requirements specification

On 7 September 2021, government set out its new plan for adult social care reform in England. This includes reform of how local authorities should charge for adult social care, introducing: - a new lifetime cap on the amount anyone in England who enters care after October 2023 will need to spend on care; - a more generous means-test and further roll-out of section 18(3) of the Care Act to allow more self-funders to access local authority care rates
