The debate around the funding of adult social care is focused on homeowners but around one in four people over 75 do not own their home.
This means that thousands of people cannot afford to fund the care they need in later life. As it becomes harder for younger people to buy their own home, this group of older people without assets is only likely to increase.
The Salvation Army fears that the one-in-four people over the age of 75 who do not own their own home are still not a focus for the government in the lead up to the release of its green paper on adult social care.
