Slight increase in numbers receiving public funded long term care

The number of people receiving publicly funded long-term care in 2020/21 increased by 3,000 (0.3 per cent) to 841,000. This overall increase was made up of a very small decrease in the number of 18–64-year-old adults receiving long-term care, outweighed by a slightly larger increase in the number of older people receiving long-term care support.
