Holding answer received on 24 February 2017

Local authorities spend on adult social care is financed through locally raised and retained income such as Council Tax and Business Rates and from centrally distributed revenue streams, such as the Better Care Fund, Revenue Support Grant and specific grants to local authorities and other organisations.

It is not possible to estimate all the elements of spend that go towards providing care from of each of these central government funding streams.

Information on adult social care spending by each and all local authorities in England is published on the Department’s website:
