Social care supports society's most vulnerable people — yet it's a sector in crisis with ever-increasing demand, unmet need, rising costs and a fragile provider market
Reform is essential to manage further increases in cost and demand. In 2018/19, almost 50% of councils overspent on adult social care and 80% overspent on children's services. Planning for and managing the delivery of such volatile, demand-led services is far from easy, especially when resources are scarce.
