The UK’s crucial homecare support network is facing a crisis. Almost a million people each year need help to live at home, due to age or disability, yet central and local government continues to put an unbearable squeeze on funding and these vital frontline services are at risk.
Essential homecare support is not possible unless it has proper funding. Without these important services, older and disabled people may not get the help they need and the stretched NHS faces more pressure.
Homecare is already chronically under-funded and a £750m shortfall is predicted in 2016 if action isn’t taken now. We are calling on Government to address this issue urgently in the autumn spending review.
Campaign showing the UK Government why more funding is urgently needed for homecare to support older and disabled people at home & reward care workers. Backed by @ukhca
