Councils are being provided with access to over £1 billion of additional funding for social care in 2021-22. This includes £300 million of new grant funding for social care, on top of the £1 billion social care grant announced last year. Longer term funding decisions on social care beyond 2021-22 will be decided at the next Spending Review.
