unstar this property answer text <p>Social care is a means tested service. The Care Act 2014 requires that local authorities must assess any adult who appears to have a care and support need. Where a person has needs which do not meet the national eligibility criteria, as set out in the Care Act, their local authority must provide the person with information and advice on what support is available in the community to meet those needs.</p><p> </p><p>The Autumn 2015 Spending Review announced that local authorities who are responsible for social care would have the ability to raise additional funding to spend exclusively on adult social care. If all local authorities use this to its maximum effect it could raise nearly £2 billion a year by 2019-20. 95% of local authorities have taken up the precept in 2016-17, raising £382 million extra for social care this year, in line with the Office for Budget Responsibility forecast. In addition from 2017 the Spending Review made available new funds for social care services, rising to £1.5 billion by 2019-20. This will be made available to local authorities directly and is to be included in an improved Better Care Fund.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Social care continues to be a key priority for the Government.</p><p> </p><p>The Spending Review as a whole looked at the pressures on local government over the Spending Review period and particular attention was paid to adult social care services. Spending Review decisions on social care services took into account a range of financial and economic factors, including independent academic modelling of future demand for services.</p><p> </p><p>As a result of the Spending Review announced in November 2015, the Government is giving local authorities access to up to £3.5 billion of new support for social care by 2019/20. This should mean local government has access to the funding to increase social care spending in real terms by the end of the Parliament.</p><p> </p><p>In addition the current Relative Needs Formula does take into account demographics and seeks to measure need for state-funded care, and thus takes into account population need, the proportion of the population who are below the income and wealth means test threshold and the level of informal care support available.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has commissioned a review of the formulae that we use for the Relative Needs Formula. This review is so that we can incorporate more recent and detailed data and statistical techniques. The researchers are currently writing up the research and this will be published in due course.</p>

unstar 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>
