Social care sector respond to spending cuts

Social care sector respond to spending cuts

The Care Sector have again come together to write to both the Chancellor of Exchequer and Secretaries of State for the Department of Health, Department of Communities and Local Government to help face the challenge to meet the requirements of the disabled, elderly and their carers.

The letter clearly outlines how the social care settlement in the Spending Review does not adequately meet the growing care pressures and calls for urgent talks to discuss the imminent care crisis.

They state that ‘’we believe the package put forward for social care will not enable us to fill the current gap in funding, cover additional costs associated with the introduction of the National Living Wage, nor fully meet future growth in demand due to our ageing population’’

The industry will be watching the response to this letter closely.

  • Care homes are already being pushed to the limit. I agree, unless something changes, many of them are going to call time on the industry.
