Worcestershire County Council welcomes Government's social care funding boost

INCREASED funding for social care announced by the Government in the Queen’s Speech has been welcomed by Worcestershire County Council.

Local authorities across the country will receive an extra £1billion for both adults’ and children’s social care every year for the duration of this Parliament.

The Government also announced it would consult on a two-year precept which would generate an extra £500m for local councils for 2020/21.

Councillor Adrian Hardman, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Adult Social Care, said adult social care had always been one of the authority’s top priorities.

“This latest funding announcement is a great start in finding a long-term solution and ensuring future stability of the service.”
