Figures show many homecare providers not benefitting from infection control fundFigures show many homecare providers not benefitting from infection control fund

New figures have been uploaded to the government website on Local authority spending of the first tranche of the Infection Control Fund which indicate many homecare providers haven't benefitted from the Fund, despite having similar pressures as residential care providers.

The figures show over 40% of councils had given no funding to homecare providers by 23 July, although a few intended to make provision.

The figures were based on local authority returns from councils in England relating to the first tranche of the £600m funding. A second tranche of £300m was given to local authorities for distribution on 24 July 2020.

UKHCA has repeatedly called for funding to be increased to domiciliary care providers, who have experienced hugely increased costs on PPE and staffing during the pandemic, and for local decision-making to reflect this.
