Build Back Better: Our Plan for Health and Social Care’, was published on 7 September, committing to investing an additional £5.4 billion over three years.

In developing the proposals set out in the Plan, we discussed priorities for reform with a wide range of stakeholders, including people with disabilities. We will continue to work with care users, providers and other partners, including disabled people and disability-led organisations, to co-develop more detail on our plans for reform of adult social care. Further detail will be published in a white paper later this year.
