Spending on older people's social care in England has fallen by half a billion pounds, according to a new report.


The charity Age UK - combining Age Concern and Help the Aged - said that, in order to maintain the same levels of service before the coalition came to power in 2010, the Government needed to increase its spending to £7.8 billion.
