The Autumn Budget and Spending Review 2021 (SR21) set out the government’s spending plans for the rest of this Parliament.

This investment will support strong public services and be targeted where it will deliver improved outcomes and value for money for the taxpayer.

The Department for Health and Social care will receive £188.6 billion in 2024-25. This funding will help to tackle the elective backlog, make progress on 40 New Hospitals and reform our adult social care system.

The Department for Education settlement provides an £18.4 billion cash increase over the Parliament to £86.7 billion in 2024-25. The settlement provides significant investment in skills and supports the government’s commitment to level up education, through additional funding for schools and a package of support to recover lost learning.
