Lords Economic Affairs Committee calls for more social care fundingLords Economic Affairs Committee calls for more social care funding

The Economic Affairs Committee has published its report 'Social care funding: time to end a national scandal.' The report recommends that the Government immediately spends £8 billion to restore social care to acceptable standards and then introduces free personal care over a period of 5 years.

The Committee found that publicly funded social care support is shrinking, as diminishing budgets have forced local authorities to limit the numbers of people who receive public funding. Funding is £700 million lower than 2010/11 in real terms, despite continuing increases in the numbers of people who need care.

More information can be found on the committee web-page.
