National disability charity backs calls for urgent cross-party review to address sustainability of social care sector National disability charity, Sense, has welcomed calls from three Commons committee heads for an urgent cross-party review to find a sustainable solution to the current social care funding gap ahead of the next spending round. The social care sector is currently running at a substantial deficit, which is estimated to hit £2.6 billion per year by 2020. Sense, who supports deafblind people and those with complex needs, has been calling on the Government to deliver urgent funding to plug the sector’s unsustainable gap and help protect the future of the vital social care services. Richard Kramer, Deputy CEO of disability charity Sense, said: “The stark warnings on the fragility of the social care sector are finally hitting home and we welcome the call for a cross-party review tasked with finding a sustainable solution to this growing crisis ahead of the next spending round.
