Scope has responded to a new report on adult social care published by the Public Accounts Committee.
MPs warned that social care in England was in a "precarious state" as the report
was published today.
James Taylor, Head of Policy and Public Affairs at disability charity Scope, said:
“This is yet more evidence that our social care system is crumbling in the face of increasing demand and chronic underfunding.
“Approximately a third of people who use long-term social care are disabled , and rely on support with basics such as getting washed, getting dressed and leaving the house. This support enables disabled people to live independently, work and socialise.
“The Government urgently needs to work with disabled people to put in place a workable long-term plan to prevent the current social care system from collapsing completely and create a system fit for the 21st Century.”
