More money for social care

The government is now consulting on its draft local authority finance settlement for 2020-21.

An important part of this is £1bn of additional social care grant, and up to an extra £500m of social care money from increased Council tax.

Both Wokingham and West Berkshire have received poor social care grant settlements in recent years, so I look forward to some of this proposed increase coming our way.

    Still haven’t addressed that some people pay and some get it free.

    Basic provision should be available to all or none. Similar to child benefit which it is about time was addressed. Available to all or available to none.
