What is the Government Social Care Plan and How Does It Affect You?

Published6th December 2021

With a new Government social care plan on the horizon, what should you know?

Recently, the Government unveiled a government social care plan to tackle healthcare staffing issues over the next 10 years. This follows Boris Johnson’s 2019 promise to “fix the crisis in social care once and for all”. This is the largest government social care plan in recent history, so here is an outline for how it’ll be used.

From the £36 billion health and care levy, the government outlines how they will use £5.4 billion over this period.

  1. Part of the £1.7 billion allocated to improve social care will fund a repairs service. This will help older and disabled people live for longer with their families or independently in their own homes.They will receive more money to enable adaptations such as stairlifts, wet rooms and home technologies.
  2. At least £300 million will be invested to increase the range of supported housing.
  3. Following from this, £150 million to drive greater adoption of technology, which can support independent living and improve care.
  4. £25 million will be invested to change the services provided to support unpaid carers.
  5. A previously announced £500 million will go towards ensuring the social care workforce have the right training and qualifications.

What does this government social care plan mean for you?
