Chancellor’s funding commitments represent no more than a small step – VODG responds to spending review commitments

High quality, well-funded and sustainable services are essential to enable disabled children and adults to live the lives they choose.

Commenting on the Chancellor’s spending round commitments for social care VODG chief executive Dr Rhidian Hughes said:

“The funding of social care is a long story of sustained political failure to invest. The Chancellor’s commitments today represent no more than a small step forward. To deliver a meaningful solution will require political nerve and insight which to date has not been evident.”
