National Insurance Rise
On 7th September 2021, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced new plans to reform health and social care funding which will include raising National Insurance (NI) via a levy. Many argue that increasing the tax will punish the young and worse off.
Johnson’s new plan will lead to a NI increase of around 1.25 per cent, thus raising £10bn a year, but this will also lead to limiting a rise in the state pension.

We urge individuals to become involved and join our campaign to fight against the cuts in social care and support and for a radical change in the way social care is delivered. You can join as an individual member for £5 per year.
If you are a member of a trade union, campaign, or other organisation that wants to see radical change to our social care system, please become an affiliate.
We are run by volunteers. We rely on donations to help drive our work forward. Every penny goes towards our campaigning!
