Council tax rises insufficient to fund social careCouncil tax rises insufficient to fund social care

Research by the Local Government Association suggests that council tax rises in 2019/20 will bring in insufficient funds to prevent the need for further cutbacks in adult social care services.

The LGA estimate that 'even if all councils used their council tax flexibilities to the maximum allowed, adult social care services still face a funding gap of at least £1 billion in 2019/20, just to maintain existing standards of care. This will rise to £3.6 billion by 2025.' More from: www.local.gov.uk/about/news/council-tax-will-fail-protect-adult-social-care-services-year
