Comment: cost of the NAAS so far

Rachael Wardell, Chair of the ADCS Workforce Development Policy Committee, said:

“It is difficult to predict what the eventual national cost of the NAAS might be, however, in the context of austerity and rising demand for our services ADCS continues to question whether the £18.4 million the government states it has spent on the NAAS so far represents good value for money. Instead this funding would be much better directed at frontline and early help services which are experiencing a real strain on resources, and in the retention of social workers.”
