Labour councillor declares that government is ‘ducking the issue’ of funding social care.

Labour’s Leader on Cherwell District Council has slammed mooted increases in council tax as a solution to funding issues in the social care sector.

It was revealed this week that government ministers are considering allowing local authorities to raise council tax higher than the 2% extra currently permitted. Councils regularly cite pressure on the social care system as a major issue and spending has decreased by 9% in five years.

Labour Leader on Cherwell District Council, Councillor Sean Woodcock.

Councillor Sean Woodcock said, in response to the suggested increase:

“This is the government completely ducking its responsibilities. Our social care system is in a complete mess. Councils have and are continuing to cut services as their funding from Whitehall is slashed.This is then having a knock-on effect on our National Health Service where the axe is being taken to services there.

What is actually needed is a radical rethink of how our care system operates and a proper debate on how to plug the funding gap that already exists, let alone how to deal with the increased pressure coming down the tracks. This may mean a total overhaul of the care system nationally as well as a brutally frank discussion with the public about what is required.

But rather than face up to this, the government has decided to do what it has done since 2010; abrogate responsibility and therefore blame to local councils, which simply cannot cope. Meanwhile everyone’s council tax bill goes up with negligible impact on the quality or availability of social care. This is a failure of leadership by this inept Tory government.”
