Responding the announcement of an extension to the Infection Control Fund and support for testing in adult social care, ADASS President Stephen Chandler said:

"We welcome the extension of the Infection Control Fund and support for testing in adult social care and believe that it is vital that the Government continues to prioritise adult social care in its on-going response to the pandemic. We now need certainty for all other aspects of adult social care funding so that we can ensure that everyone continues to get the care and support they need."
