Investing in prevention: increase UK social care funding

World-class care starts at home: Led by the care industry’s top conference and exhibitions; The Care Show and Health+Care, social care chiefs call upon government to realise the power of care with a significant investment injection into the system. As it stands today, adult social care services currently face a £3.5 billion funding gap by 2025, just to maintain existing standards of care. 

Despite the eagerly awaited £20bn a year budget increase, NHS resources also remain overstretched. With greater funding, social care can create a dramatic release on healthcare system pressures and help keep people out of hospitals and managing conditions at home for a better quality of life and wellbeing. 

Give the ‘unsung heroes’ of the care profession the resources required to deliver world class care to vulnerable adults in a home environment and alleviate the burgeoning pressures on NHS resources. 

We respectfully ask HM government to make much larger annual increases in funding for our social care system to provide the efficient, properly staffed and well-equipped system that we all need and deserve. Together, we can realise the power of care!
