We are pleased that 84% of adult social care providers are rated as good or outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (February 2020).
However, we know the social care sector is under pressure due to growing need for care. We are providing councils with a £1 billion grant for adults and children’s social care on top of maintaining £2.5 billion of existing social care grants for 2020/21.
Local authorities are best placed to understand and plan for the care needs of their populations, and to develop and build local market capacity. This funding will support local authorities to meet rising demand and continue to stabilise the social care system.
