£48m COVID recovery fund to support social care in Wales
A new £48m package of funding to support social care in Wales has been announced by Deputy Minister for Social Services Julie Morgan.
The majority of the funding – £40m – has been allocated to local authorities and will be used to help the social care sector meet the ongoing challenges caused by the pandemic.
A further £8m will fund a number of specific priorities, including extending the carers support fund; tackle loneliness in older people; investing in the social care workforce’s wellbeing and in residential services for care-experienced children.
