ADASS Responds to the Autumn Statement 2022

Responding to the Autumn Statement 2022, Sarah McClinton, ADASS President, and Cathie Williams, ADASS Chief Executive said:


We still need to read the small print, but with tens of thousands waiting for care and support, unpaid carers breaking down and staff quitting in droves, today’s announcement appears to provide some welcome relief and lessen some of the impact of the current crises ahead of what promises to be the most difficult winter any of us can remember. 

The next step is to develop a long-term, fully funded plan that provides the right support for older and disabled people, and unpaid carers, together with an adult social care workforce plan that complements the one for the NHS.
