Directors of adult social services call for an increase in homecare fundingDirectors of adult social services call for an increase in homecare funding

A report by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) highlights the important role of homecare in keeping people safe and well at home in the pandemic and calls for more financial support for the sector.

The report summarises the results of a survey of directors of adult social services in England, and the pressures faced by councils in coping with COVID-19, with increased demand from people who need care because of disruption to their support from other types of service, family carers or PAs, or hospital discharge.

ADASS call for an additional £468 million for projected overspend and to safeguard essential care and support services, and an extra £480 million for local care markets to provide increased care at home, and other community support, as well as a sustainable, long-term solution to funding adult social care.
