The fifth edition of LaingBuisson’s Adult Specialist Care UK Market Report is vital reading for anyone involved in adult social care for adults under 65, be they a provider, a commissioner, an investor, an advisor or a policy maker. Written and researched by leading market commentator, William Laing, this industry standard report provides unique insight into all areas of the market, including funding, operating models, future prospects and supply and demand.

The report covers all aspects of social care for younger adults and LaingBuisson estimates the UK market to be worth £13.6 billion (2020/21). This includes services for people with learning difficulties, mental health issues, substance misuse problems and acquired brain injury, and comprises both residential and non-residential settings.

The report shows the adult specialist care market was resilient and performed well in the face of the pandemic. The more important driver is public policy, including funding and regulation. Notwithstanding the government’s autumn 2021 decisions, public-facing adult specialist care providers will continue to operate in a challenging financial environment.
