Infection Control Grant Extended until March 2021

An additional £546 million is being put into the Adult Social Care Infection Control Fund. This will bolster measures to tackle Covid-19, bringing total funding allocated by the Government to over £1.1bn.

The original funding was given to local authorities in May, with a second installment in July. The further extension into March 2021 will help ensure the social care system has everything needed for the difficult winter months.
