Massive economic benefits of social care

June 10, 2013

An indepth, independent study by Deloitte highlights for every £1 spent on services like support in the community, housing & communication, benefits worth an average of £1.30 are accrued to carers & local/central government.

Experts analysed 4 distinct services used by disabled people who need a lower level of care, which is often just a few hours a week.  Totalling up the costs in comparison to the benefits & savings, the returns ranged from 18% to 53%. 

Benefits to the Exchequer, local health & care commissioners at least 30%.
