Stockport Council is encouraging all residents and community groups to take part in a major national consultation on adult social care.

Stockport Council is encouraging all residents and community groups to take part in a major national consultation on adult social care.

The Local Government Association (LGA) consultation is also looking for views on support for older people, working age adults with mental or physical disabilities and unpaid carers.

It comes as the LGA estimates that adult social care services face an annual funding gap of £3.5 billion by 2025.

The Deputy Leader of Stockport Council, and Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Cllr Wendy Wild, said: “Whilst the government Green paper has been delayed until the Autumn the LGA has launched its own green paper and consultation on the funding challenges facing Adult Social Care. The LGA is asking members of the public to get involved in its consultation.

“So please do get involved as the findings will help influence the Governments spending plans.”
The LGA’s green paper consultation is available here. The consultation closes on 26 September.
