Social care in the UK is a major issue, as more and more people need help with their everyday living. Local councils and authorities are struggling to meet the demand for social adult care services. The Local Government Association estimates that by 2025, the number of adults over 65 needing social care will rise from 1.2 million to 2 million due to population growth and an increase in life expectancy. This blog post discusses challenges faced by local councils and authorities in the UK to deliver social adult care services.
-There is a lack of skilled workers and high turnover rates, which lead to gaps in the workforce that cannot be filled due to insufficient funding.
– Local authorities need more resources from the central government so they can provide the necessary support.
These services must be delivered effectively to ensure not just improved quality of life for those receiving them, but also a better experience for Local Councils, who often face significant financial burdens as well as workforce pressures due to overall public health expenditure.
