Prime Minister Announces Adult Social Care Reform Plans & Funding

Prime Minister Boris Johnson today (07/09/21) set out the government’s vision for the future of adult social care. Following today's announcement, Stephen Chandler, ADASS President, said:

"We have waited a quarter of a century for a government to deliver on the promise of sustainable funding and reform of adult social care.  This welcome announcement feels like a significant step forward and we hope that this will be the start of a new chapter for those of us with care and support needs, or who care for family members who do.   

"We are keen to look at the detail, but we hope that this package of measures can begin to help us to tackle the many challenges we face today, whilst transforming care and support for the future.   

"We look forward to working with Government to ensure that in the future everyone gets the care, support and safeguards they need to live good lives.
