Autumn Statement and Adult Social Care

published on 24 Nov 2016

A Salvation Army spokesperson said: "We support older people across the country including running 13 residential care homes in the United Kingdom and Ireland. We have seen the issues created by cuts to adult social care and the huge impact these cuts have on families and individuals who are left needing to care for older parents alongside maintaining work and other family commitments. And providers are struggling to run homes on the funding provided. The cuts to adult social care are hurting now and it is sad that the government have not addressed the issue in the Autumn Statement.”
