Delivering adult social care in challenging times

Delivering adult social care in challenging times This report outlines the issues and funding pressures facing county authorities in delivering adult social care. The results of a survey of county directors of adult social care reveals that 88 per cent believe their budgets to be 'severe' or 'critical' and 12 per cent report their current funding levels as 'manageable'. The report argues that social care pressures are most acute in county areas due to the fastest-growing elderly populations and the proportionately reduced funding in county authorities.
