Care England, the largest representative body for independent providers of adult social care, has welcomed the Chancellor’s announcement that the Government will introduce a Green Paper on the long term funding of social care, but has warned that this must be followed by action.
Professor Martin Green OBE Chief Executive for Care England says:
“The Chancellor’s Spring Budget has quite rightly acknowledged the precarious state of adult social care. Whilst the £2 billion additional funding over three years for adult social care is welcome it will only be an efficient use of tax payers money should the Green Paper on Adult Social Care deliver the reforms that are necessary to put the system on a stable footing”.
