Council care fee increase to put vulnerable at risk

Care England has criticised Telford and Wrekin Council’s uplift increases of 3% for care home rates and 6.6% in domiciliary care.

The charity, representing independent adult social care providers, is calling for a significant rise in funding and the council said it understood the pressures providers faced.

Professor Martin Green, chief executive of Care England, said care providers needed to be properly funded and urged the Labour-run authority to address the uplift amount, as inflation is running at about 10%.

"Vulnerable people will be at serious risk if we do not give a significant increase in funding for social care services," he said.
