 In response to the Governments Spending Round announcement earlier today, President of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), Julie Ogley, said:

 “The Prime Minister has been clear adult social care is at the top of his domestic agenda.  The Government must seize the opportunity afforded to deliver on this ambition and put adult social care back on firm financial footing.

 “Failure to do so will risk seeing more people going without the care and support they need, an already fragile care market collapsing, the workforce crisis deepening and more pressure being loaded onto an already struggling NHS.  The Government needs to take action and deliver for the people who use these vital services.”
