Adult social care

Welcome to Yourtown

Adult social care is in crisis, with councils pushed to the financial brink and forced to make difficult budgetary decisions as they try to plug the funding gap. The LGA estimates that care for the elderly, disabled and some of the most vulnerable people in society faces a funding shortfall of at least £2.6 billion (by 2019/20). Extra council tax-raising powers will not bring in enough money to alleviate the pressure. So how would you pay for adult social care if you were in control of a council's purse strings? Move the budget sliders to make spending decisions and see how it could impact on Yourtown's other local services...
