Home / Resources & Guidance / Care England Respond to LGA Report

In response to the Local Government Association’s new report, ‘The Care Act 2014: Ten years on from Royal Assent‘ Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England says:

“LGA findings that almost one in three councils are no longer confident they can provide basic adult social care should set alarm bells ringing. The precarious state of the adult social care sector as a result of a persistent workforce crisis and chronic underfunding has yet again been made clear, and still the government continue to turn a blind eye to the evidence that is staring them in the face. Our sector needs meaningful reform to be able to cope with growing demand. To ignore social care any longer is to ignore the nearly half a million people who receive care and support, and the 1.5 million people who deliver it: government simply cannot continue to let these people down.”
