UKHCA Media Release

UKHCA's reaction to the Spring Budget - 11/03/2020

"The commitment of additional funding for social care to tackle the growing concerns around coronavirus are welcome. However, the glaring omission of additional funding, beyond funding already announced for social care, is hugely disappointing.

"Over 1.5m people are not getting the support they need. The £1bn for existing adult and children's social care for councils in England, promised by the previous Chancellor, is a long way short of what is needed to ensure people's needs are fully met. Councils need to ensure that what funding there is available reaches frontline services."

Colin Angel, UKHCA's Policy Director
