star this property answer text <p>We recognise that demand for social care is growing and this was a consideration in last year's Spending Review.</p><p>The Spending Review settlement provides up to £3.5 billion of new support for adult social care by 2019/20 - greater than the £2.9 billion that the Local Government Association estimated was needed for adult social care in their Spending Review submission. The vast majority of councils have already taken advantage of the opportunity to introduce a new Social Care Precept, which allows them to increase council tax by 2% above the existing threshold. By the end of the Parliament, this will raise up to £2 billion that must be spent exclusively on adult social care. In addition, by 2019/20 an extra £1.5 billion per year will be available for inclusion in the Better Care Fund.</p><p>Taken together, the Social Care Precept and the Better Care Fund will mean local government has access to the funding needed to increase social care spending in real terms by the end of the Parliament.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Whilst 79% of inspected care services are good or outstanding there is more to do to address variation. This is why we introduced tougher inspections of care services and provided an additional £2 billion to the sector. The Department is also working with organisations from across the adult social care sector to implement Quality Matters – a commitment to improving quality.</p><p> </p><p>The Government announced that we will be consulting on the future of social care. The consultation will set out options to improve the social care system to put it on a more secure financial footing and address issues related to the quality of care and variation in practice.</p><p> </p><p>The Care Quality Commission (CQC) makes sure adult social care providers meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. The CQC reports that 75% of inspected providers are rated as good for ‘safety’.</p><p>The CQC can take action if it identifies aspects of care which need to improve. The CQC can: issue requirement notices or warning notices to set out what improvements must be made and by when; make changes to a care provider's registration to limit what they may do; place a provider in special measures; and, issue cautions, fines or prosecute cases where people are harmed or placed in danger of harm.</p><p> </p><p>The CQC reports that 76% of inspected providers are rated as outstanding or good for ‘well-led’. The Department is working closely with our delivery partners, Skills for Care, to improve the level of skills of the adult social care workforce which includes supporting the development of leadership at all levels. The Skills for Care Leadership programme equips leaders and managers at all levels to positively embrace service transformation as part of an integrated, whole-system view of person-centred care.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is important to take the time to get the details right for a better care system, so that people receive high standards of care, helping them maintain their independence and well-being. This is why we want to integrate plans for social care with the new National Health Service plan, we therefore now intend to publish the social care Green Paper in the autumn around the same time as the NHS plan.</p><p> </p><p>In the meantime, all councils have statutory duties to look after the vulnerable, elderly and disabled people in their area. The Care Act 2014 requires that where a person is assessed as having eligible care and support needs, these must be met by their local authority. For those who do not meet the eligibility criteria, local authorities should signpost people to relevant services.</p><p> </p><p>The Care Act 2014 also placed a new duty on councils to offer a meaningful choice of services, so that people have a range of high quality, appropriate care options to choose from and that they get the services that best meet their needs.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises the pressures on the social care system. This is why the Government announced an additional £2 billion at Spring Budget 2017 for adult social care over the three years from 2017-18. With this, and other measures, the Government has given councils access to £9.4 billion dedicated funding for adult social care over three years.</p>
