Responding to a report by the Centre for Policy Studies, which sets out proposals to secure the future of adult social care, Glen Garrod, President of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), said:

 “This timely report is one of a number of useful contributions which should be considered by government when deciding on how to ensure a sustainable, fair and equitable future for social care.

 “It is also yet another reminder about why it is absolutely essential that the Government publishes its social care green paper as soon as possible, so that those who receive care as well as those who work in the sector are given the assurance and certainty about how this will be funded in the immediate to long-term future.”
