This paper begins with a short review of the welfare state in England. The review aims to keep the problem of poverty and aging in the UK in its proper perspective. The paper then reports on the services and support given to the elderly in England.
From the Paper:"In England, about one in five households are living in poverty, compared with just one in ten households in Sweden and one in 8 in Germany. "Poverty in Britain has remained stubbornly high," Schifferes explains, and because of Britain's "low state pension" there will likely be more poverty among the elderly in the future "if occupational pensions continue to decline." The UK went through an "economic crisis" in the 1970s - and now faces the pressure of terrorist threats - all of which makes it unlikely that welfare benefits to the aged will be increased anytime soon."
