Ending the other care crisis - infographic
This infographic to accompany the Ending the other care crisis report shows that:
Over 100,000 disabled people are about to lose out on vital support to do essentials in life.
Two in five disabled people aren't getting basic needs met, like getting washed, getting dressed, eating or cooking, leaving the house.
Without this support they'll have to rely on the NHS, extended families and council services.
But just 0.17% of what we spend as a country would end this care crisis.
For every £1 we spend on social care we get back £1.30:
- 60p will go to the Exchequer as revenue or savings
- 50p will be saved by local authorities or the NHS
- 20p will go to disabled people or their loved ones as income.
That's over £300m back in the public purse.
So let's get the Government to end the care crisis.
