In response to the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) budget survey 2015, Janet Morrison, Chief Executive of Independent Age, said:

“This worrying survey shows how the frail and elderly in our society are being hit by year on year cutbacks to council services. Over 360,000 fewer older people receive care services from councils than they did a few years ago - those who struggle with basic tasks such as washing, dressing and eating. Yet the government appears unable or unwilling to grasp the reality of cuts to social care, act to prevent them or recognise their impact on the NHS."
