The Homecare Deficit 2016 - the funding of older people's homecare across the UK

This is the second report from the UK Home Care Association that analyses the average fees paid by councils in Great Britain and the Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland.

Once again it exposes the extent of the deficit in funding for homecare services for older people across the United Kingdom.

The data demonstrates the level of risk that many councils place on a system intended to support elderly and disabled people, who should rightly expect their care needs to be properly supported by a workforce that is adequately rewarded.
