Throughout the pandemic, we have provided almost £2 billion in specific funding for adult social care. This consists of the Infection Control Fund, the Rapid Testing Fund and the Workforce Capacity Fund.

The Government will continue to monitor COVID-19 pressures on the sector and will keep future funding under review.
