Croydon Conservatives welcome winter social care funding
 

Today, the government has announced how much additional funding local authorities in England will receive to ease pressures over winter thanks to our balanced approach to the economy, including £1,401,339 for Croydon.

Earlier this month, the Health and Social Care Secretary announced £240 million for the social care system over winter, giving councils a significant boost to prevent people from going into hospital unnecessarily and getting them home as soon as they are ready.

This funding will ease pressure on the health system, and follows the announcement of £145 million to improve emergency care within the NHS this winter. The money will pay for home care packages to help patients get out of hospital quicker, reablement packages to help patients carry out everyday tasks and regain mobility and confidence, and home adaptations.

Cllr Yvette Hopley, Conservative spokesperson for health, has welcomed this announcement of £1,401,339 for social care services in Croydon, thanks to the Government’s balanced approach to the economy.

Commenting, Cllr Hopley said: “I am delighted that Croydon is receiving £1,401,339 of funding to help social care services cope with winter pressures. “This is part of our balanced approach to the economy - spending on key public services while keeping taxes down and getting debt falling.

“Social care packages allow people to leave hospital as soon as they are well enough, and ensure they can regain independence and confidence at home. This funding will allow Croydon to meet the care needs of more local people this winter.”
