Whilst taking difficult decisions at the Autumn Statement to ensure broader economic stability, we have increased funding for local authorities. At Autumn Statement 2022, the Government provided local authorities with access to up to an additional £2.8 billion for adult social care, discharge, and other services in 2023-24, increasing to £4.8 billion in 2024-25. This includes £1 billion of new grant funding in 2023-24 and £1.7 billion in 2024-25, further flexibility on council tax, and savings from delaying the rollout of adult social care charging reforms.
