Tough budget decisions – adult social care savings

October 26, 2015

East Sussex County Council will have £40 million less to spend on adult social care services by March 2019. This is in addition to the £28 million that we have already saved from these services since 2013.

They want your views on how they are proposing to make the savings.

Please read the consultation summary before you complete the survey.
