Commenting on the annual Budget Survey from the Association of Directors of Adult Social Care (ADASS), Morgan Vine, Head of Policy and Influencing at Independent Age, said:

“This report contains some really concerning findings which will undoubtedly impact the care people receive in later life. With continuous cuts to council budgets, it’s no surprise that 96% of adult social care directors are now not confident they have enough money to provide the vital support they’re supposed to offer by law. We’re concerned this could leave thousands of people unable to get to the toilet, wash themselves or prepare food. The government must make more funding available, and prioritise investment in the social care system to ensure no one is forced to live without the care that they so desperately need.”
