Response to the pre-budget social care report from the Communities and Local Government Committee

6 March 2017

In response to the pre-budget social care report from the Communities and Local Government Committee, Leonard Cheshire Disability's policy and research manager​, Rosanna Singler, said:

‘The latest report from the Communities and Local Government Committee is further evidence the government needs to put more funding into social care. 

‘The government must take action now and use the Spring Budget to solve the social care crisis. 

‘We also welcome MPs backing our calls for a cross-party commission to look at the longer term funding of social care. There is an urgent need. 

‘Failure to act would mean thousands of disabled and older people continuing to be left isolated, without the vital support they need to get up, washed and dressed.’
