The recent budget announced an extra £650 million for Social Care across the country. That will mean an extra £1.4 million for Adult Social Care services across Walsall which will benefit our local area in Aldridge-Brownhills.

These additional resources combined with the forthcoming Spending Review and the adult social care Green Paper are all part of the Government’s strategy to put social care on a firmer, long-term financial footing for the people who depend on care and support.
