House of Lords Reports

A House of Lords adult social care committee has urged the government to make adult social care a “national imperative”, through an “appropriate and long-term funding settlement”, alongside a workforce and skills plan that included action to tackle low pay.

This should support the achievement of the vision of adult social care set out by Social Care Future, which the committee said the government should ensure was endorsed in principle by social care bodies including Social Work England, Skills for Care and the Care Quality Commission.

It also called for an “independent public review” of the Care Act 2014 and for government to work with councils to ensure its full implementation by the end of this Parliament (late 2024).
