Additional funding for staffing in social care

The Department for Health and Social Care has announced that they will be providing an additional £120 million in funding for local authorities in England in order to boost staffing levels in the social care sector.

The funding can:

  • provide additional care staff where shortages arise
  • support administrative tasks so experienced and skilled staff can focus on providing care
  • help existing staff to take on additional hours if they wish with overtime payments or by covering childcare costs
