Adass Budget Survey 2018

This 2018 survey report from Adass reveals that there is an urgent need for long-term funding for social care, as many adult social care services are on the verge of collapse.

The report also mentions how "insufficient social care, together with reductions in primary and community health services mean that for more people hospital may be the only option."

Interestingly, the survey comments on the social care market as being “increasingly fragile and failing”, identifying that in some parts of the country, almost a third of councils have reported that residential and nursing home care providers have closed down or handed back contracts.
