The survey

This survey was undertaken to garner views from across councils in England about in-year pressures on adult social care budgets. The results of the survey will provide vital evidence ahead of the publication of the government’s Adult Social Care Green Paper, the 2019/20 Spending Review and the NHS Long-Term Plan.

ADASS circulated a short survey to all 152 directors in England. The survey was open for two weeks from late September into early October 2018 and 97 (64%) directors responded.
