Responding to the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services’ autumn survey, Chairman of the LGA’s Community Wellbeing Board, Cllr Ian Hudspeth, said:

“As this survey demonstrates, councils’ social care services are committed to ensuring adults of all ages have access to high quality care and support when they need it.

“However, rising costs and demand pressures mean incredibly difficult decisions are having to be made.

“This is one of the major issues facing society and councils have played their part in keeping the debate on the public agenda.

“The next government needs to bring forward substantive proposals for the future of adult social care as soon as possible, to reassure all those who use and work in this vital service.

“We need an honest debate about what the future of care and support should be and how it should be funded in the long-term.”
