Local Government Association – Adult social care funding survey

Survey of MPs and Future MPs on behalf of the Local Government Association

Three quarters of MPs (75%) agree that adult social care funding from government should be protected in a similar way to the NHS for the next five years.

A survey of future MPs made up of incumbent MPs and prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) seen as being likely to win their seats in May showed that 76 per cent agreed that in the next parliament, adult social care funding from government should be protected in the same way as NHS funding.
