3 March 2021:
The social care sector has been completely overlooked by the Chancellor in his budget statement today.
This is an insult to older people needing care and their families. Our helpline hears every day from people relying on vital care services who already feel neglected and left behind by the Government. The sector was on its knees before the coronavirus pandemic hit and now it is at crisis point.
Following a year of unremitting challenges, with care services stretched to breaking point and staff burnt out, support from the Chancellor was desperately and urgently needed. Older people and their families deserve better.
