Adult social care in Wales gets extra funding boost

Adult social care in Wales gets extra funding boost image

Adult social care providers in Wales will receive an extra £22.7m in funding to help cover the cost of the coronavirus crisis.

The funding, in addition to the £40m already announced by the Welsh Government, will help offset some of the income lost by care homes due to the pandemic.

Health and social services minister, Vaughan Gething, said: 'The initial payment of £40m helped the sector meet the rising costs incurred during the pandemic in areas such as staffing, increased infection control, higher food prices and greater use of ICT to keep families in touch with their loved ones where they were no longer able to meet.

'This further funding will ensure adult social care providers can maintain their vital care in what continues to be challenging circumstances.'
