Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL3164, tabled on 18 October 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the proposed reforms to adult social care announced in September, what steps they are taking to ensure that as many people as possible can remain in their own homes for as long as reasonably possible.

We recognise the important role of housing in providing care and support to people in the community. There is clear evidence that the right housing arrangements can deliver improved outcomes and meet people’s preferences to remain in their own home. The Government will invest in the Disabled Facilities Grant and supported housing, as well as exploring other innovative housing solutions to allow more people to live independently at home for longer with personalised care and support. We will continue to work closely with the sector, including as part of the white paper on adult social care which will be published later this year.
