Devious Government Tactics?

 

Copied below is a current letter from the government which appears to shift allocated capital funding for 2016/17 from adult social care to DISTRICT councils and the DISABILTY FACILITIES GRANT. Cunning stunts!

ADULTS’ PERSONAL SOCIAL SERVICES: SPECIFIC CAPITAL GRANT ALLOCATIONS FOR 2016/17

SUMMARY

1. This letter clarifies local authority capital funding for the financial year 2016/17, which was subject to the 2015 Spending Review.

ACTION

2. This letter is provided for information only, and confirms details and allocations of Department of Health local authority specific capital funding.

Disabled Facilities Grant

  1. The Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) is for the provision of adaptations to disabled people’s homes to help them to live independently for longer. Following the approach taken in 2015-16, the DFG will again be included within the Better Care Fund (BCF). This is to encourage areas to think strategically about the use of home aids/adaptations, use of technologies to support people in their own homes, and to take a joined-up approach to improving outcomes across health, social care and housing. For 2016/17, the funding will be £394m in total, a substantial increase from £220m in 2015/16.

  2. The DFG will be paid to upper-tier authorities in 2016/17. However, the statutory duty on local housing authorities to provide aids and adaptations under the DFG to those who qualify will remain. Therefore, each area will have to allocate this funding to its respective housing authorities (district councils in two-tier areas) from the pooled budget to enable them to continue to meet their statutory duty to provide adaptations to the homes of disabled people, including in relation to young people aged 17 and under.

  3. All funding pooled through the Better Care Fund – including DFG funding – will need to be allocated on the basis of plans that are jointly developed and agreed with relevant local authorities. In the case of the DFG this refers to local housing authorities. Through this local planning process, some areas may agree to invest some of this funding in

broader strategic capital projects. However, this is a local decision, to be considered as part of the BCF planning process.

Social Care (Capital) Grant

  1. To note, the social care capital grant will be discontinued from 2016/17. In order to maximise value for money of central funding the Department of Health has concentrated its social care capital grant funding into the Disabled Facilities Grant, as research suggests it can support people to remain independent in their own homes – reducing or delaying the need for care and support, and improving the quality of life of residents.

  2. The increase in the DFG of £174m outstrips the removal of the Social Care (Capital) Grant, which came to £134m in 2015/16.

FURTHER INFORMATION

8. There will be a further LASSL which confirms details and allocations of Department of Health local authority specific revenue funding. This will be published shortly.
