The Communities and Local Government Committee is going to examine whether the funding available for adult social care is sufficient for local authorities to fulfil their statutory obligations to assess and meet the needs of people requiring care and support. This will include looking at the impact of policies such as the National Living Wage and the 2% council tax precept. This feels like it could be a good opportunity to argue for an improved financial settlement for social care that doesn’t require waiting for the next Comprehensive Spending Review. We want to encourage all our clients to provide a response to the enquiry and to engage with their umbrella bodies to help them prepare the most compelling and complete picture of the evidence as possible. The deadline is 19th August so time is relatively tight to have your say.
