ADASS considers lobbying government on tax for care

Social services directors are considering telling the government that they were wrong to rule out funding adult social care through increased taxation.

At a meeting of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services’ (ADASS) executive council yesterday, members noted that there was still widespread interest in the tax option.
The government has already discounted this as unviable, in its consultation Shaping the future of care together.

But during discussion of the ADASS draft response to the green paper one director said: “There has been a strong groundswell of opinion that we should not eliminate the tax option.”
