"With adult social care facing a £3.6 billion funding gap by 2025, councils are having to make incredibly difficult decisions within tightening budgets and cannot be expected to continue relying on one-off funding injections to keep services going."
“This significant report echoes many of our own calls for adult social care to be given a long-term, sustainable funding settlement for the benefit of the millions of people who use and work in these services."
"Councils are committed to the underlying ambition of the Care Act to improve the lives and wellbeing of people with dementia and their families, to ensure their care is personalised and fits around the way they want to live their lives."
“This important annual report is further compelling evidence of the irrefutable crisis in adult social care funding which cannot be ignored and rightly highlights the efforts of councils in continuing to do all they can to help people live the lives they want to lead."
“This report is another important contribution to the debate around how we tackle the crisis in adult social care and we look forward to seeing the Government’s green paper deliver similarly concrete ideas."
