£4bn cash injection heads up Care England election manifesto

Care England has called for an immediate £4 billion cash injection as part of a long-term survival plan for social care.

In its 2019 election manifesto for social care, the membership body urges providers to challenge local candidates on their vision for social care.

Questions to ask politicians the following questions:

  • Which independent sector services have you visited in the area and what are your thoughts on the future direction of social care?
  • How will you and your party ensure that there is an adequate supply of skilled social care staff?
  • How will you ensure that there is a sustainable funding settlement for adult social care in the next Parliament?
  • What decisions will you take, or policies will you push for, to ensure that NHS and council commissioners work together and properly fund the care of people living in residential care?

For its part, Care England has laid down the following challenges to the new Government:

  • Continued and increased investment in front line social care services
  • Removing duplication and unnecessary administrative burdens
  • Joined up commissioning, subject to more oversight
  • A Commissioner for Older People defending the rights of older people
  • Scrutiny of services for adults with learning disabilities
  • Investment in care staff training, including a new support body, Skills for Delivery
  • Zero-rated VAT for all independent care services
  • Tech establishment incentive payments for providers
