The article discusses several issues regarding the funding for disabled adults' social care in Great Britain. Currently, the country has a postcode lottery where the state-funded social care assistance someone receives is based on where they live. A way forward would be to have disabled people's requirements funded through the national non-cash limited social security system by enhancing benefit rates and extending the types of benefit.
