The Homecare Deficit: A report on the funding of older people's homecare across the United Kingdom

The Homecare Deficit provides a snapshot of the prices paid for older people's homecare by councils in Great Britain and the Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland during a sample week in September 2014.

Using data obtained under freedom of information legislation, the report provides visual and numerical data to allow comparisons at a national, regional and local authority level across the UK. It highlights the vast majority of councils which pay well below UKHCA's Minimum Price for Homecare - the rate necessary to run a sustainable homecare service which complies fully with National Minimum Wage, including careworkers' travel time. A selection of infographics from the report are also available from www.ukhca.co.uk/rates.
