Charity Digital News

No extra money was pledged to address the social care crisis in the Autumn 2017 budget.  Nothing on how EU charitable funding will be replaced after Brexit or what will be done to address falling funding from councils as their budgets are cut.

Commenting on the Budget, care and support Together Trust said: “It’s disappointing that social care was not included in the Chancellor’s statement. Without substantial and immediate investment the government are continuing to put some of the most vulnerable children, young people and adults in our society at risk.
