As announced in the Autumn Statement 2022, we listened to the concerns of local Government and took the difficult decision to delay the planned adult social care charging reforms.

To ensure that these highly ambitious reforms are successful and to avoid destabilising the system, it is vital that we work with the sector to ensure that local authorities have the capacity and readiness to deliver reform successfully.

We are committed to working with local authorities to build preparedness, and the Government has made available up to £8.1 billion to put the adult social care system on a stronger financial footing.
