Tough budget decisions – adult social care savings

East Sussex County Council (ESCC) logoAdult social care’s budget for 2015/16 is £158 million.

They will have £40 million less to spend on adult social care services by March 2019 – by the end of the three-year savings plan it will be £118 million a year. This is in addition to the £28 million that they have already saved from these services since 2013.

This means making difficult decisions about which adult social care services they invest in. The consultation starts on 23 October 2015 and ends on 18 December 2015.
