Social Services Agree with Care Providers

In response to the latest report by Care England, Anna Hemmings, joint CEO of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services said:


“ADASS welcomes the practical recommendations to ease pressure on the sector in this report.  We firmly agree that we need a long term, fully funded plan for social care so everyone providing and using care services can feel confident about their care and support now and in the future.


The report describes the impossible situation facing much of adult social care, and the people who pay for that are the disabled and older people that need care and support.

The Government has invested more, but it’s not keeping pace with increased levels and complexity of need, inflationary pressures including wages, and broader pressures on local government budgets. We welcomed the increase in the living wage announced last Autumn, but with no new money to pay care workers that increase, there can only be one result: fewer jobs and cuts in care. And that’s on top of the £964m in cuts social care directors think they’ll need to make to their budgets in 2024/25 to balance the books.”
