Social care quality, populations and social care needs change on a yearly basis and it is important that new funding is allocated according to accurate data. The current formula, last revised in 2013/14, means that funding allocation may not accurately reflect levels of need. Social care quality/needs are extremely variable with monthly CQC data demonstrating how the state of social care in local authorities can change significantly every month, let alone every year.
