VODG makes forceful case for future funding of social careVODG makes forceful case for future funding of social care

The opportunity to shore up the fragile social care system must not be overlooked in the forthcoming autumn budget, according to VODG (Voluntary Organisations Disability Group) in their report on the impact of decades of underfunding.

A stitch in time: the case for funding social care describes the impact of an under-resourced adult social care sector and highlights the growing crisis in housing for disabled people.

VODG say that delays with the government's green paper setting out reform mean that any changes are unlikely to be in place before 2021. They call for secure funding for social care services supporting both older people and those of 'working age' to be brought forward urgently.
