Carers UK warn that without social care investment the results are potentially devastating | Care Industry News


Carers UK warns that without urgent and significant investment in social care, the consequences for families, the NHS and the viability of care providers are potentially devastating.

The warning comes in response to the ADASS Budget Survey 2016 [1], which shows that social care funding is not matching the growing need for, and cost of, care for older and disabled people. Whilst additional funding for care has been made available through the locally raised precept and future initiatives including the new Better Care Fund, ADASS warns that this funding comes too little and too late.
