Responding to extra funding for social care announced in today’s Spring Budget, Margaret Willcox, President Elect of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), said:

“We welcome this important step towards closing the growing gap in Government funding for adult social care.

“We are keen to build a consensus on a long-term, sustainable solution about how we provide and pay for care for years to come, and we hope the Green Paper helps to achieve that.”
