As part of the Care Act 2014 local authorities will be granted new duties. We’re asking for views on how the funding for 3 of these new duties will be allocated.

  • additional assessments for the cap on care costs: £175 million

The funding for the first 2 duties will be paid to local authorities as a Department for Communities and Local Government revenue grant and the funding for social care in prisons will be paid as a Department of Health revenue grant.

The consultation is mainly aimed at local authorities, but we also welcome responses from care providers, people with care and support needs, and their carers.
