RE: ADASS RESPONSE TO THE NAO REPORT 'THE ADULT SOCIAL CARE MARKET IN ENGLAND'

 
In response to the ‘The Adult Social Care Market in England’ report, published by the NAO today, Stephen Chandler, ADASS Vice President, said:
 
"This NAO report adds to the ever-growing body of evidence highlighting the increasingly perilous state of care markets, ongoing recruitment and retention challenges, and most importantly the impact on people including an increasing number of people with unmet needs. A situation that the onset of Coronavirus has only served to intensify further.
 

"This is why ADASS, along with other key sector partners, has called for Government to commit to the publication of promised reform proposal prior to the summer parliamentary recess, to end 25 years of inaction from successive governments and to fix social care once and for all."
