This answer is a correction from the original answer.
The Spending Round settlement for local government responds to the pressures councils are facing by providing access to the largest increase in Core Spending Power since 2015. This includes an additional £1 billion of grant funding for adults and children’s social care, on top of the continuation of existing social care grants. Decisions about the distribution of funding for local government in 2020-21 will be announced in due course.
