The Local Government Association has published a modelling of local government funding trends, from 2012-20, which contains worrying information.

Looks at these two diagrams. Chart 5 shows you how the cost of social care increases up to 2020, and squeezes all other local government expenditure. Chart 7 shows you how many people actually use local government social care services – a very small proportion of the population, compared with people who use the services that are going to be squeezed.

Will political support for social care disappear, when everyone’s services begin to vanish?
