Solace statement on adult social care white paper

Paul Najsarek, Solace spokesperson for Health & Social Care, said: “We welcome the
publication of the Government’s adult social care white paper which contains plenty
of ambition and ideas to improve the system, especially for those who need to use it,
and begin to address the growing workforce crisis facing the sector.

“This is, as the Secretary of State says, the start of a long journey and we stand ready
to continue the conversation with Government on how best to take these proposals

“However, the potential benefits of the reforms set out in this ambitious 10-year
vision risk being undermined by the overall shortage of funding to meet the social
care challenges of today. Unless that is adequately addressed by Government there is
a real danger that much of the positive content of this encouraging white paper will
not be fully realised.”
