Over the next four years there will be less money for services in East Sussex, even though demand for them is rising.
This is mainly because funding from central Government is shrinking.
We have to make savings of between £70 million and £90 million by March 2019.
This is on top of £78 million we have already saved since 2010.
For Adult Social Care, we will have £40 million less to spend on services by March 2019.
This is in addition to the £28 million that we have already saved from these services since 2013.
This means making difficult decisions about which adult social care services we continue to invest in.
There are some services that we are required by law to provide.
This limits our opportunities for making savings.
We asked for people’s views on how we are proposing to the make the savings.
The consultation started on 23 October 2015 and closed on 18 December 2015.
