Care for adults in Cornwall gets 11m boost

Funding for adult care in Cornwall is going up by nearly £11m to about £90m, Cornwall Council has agreed.

The budget rise comes after its services were rated among the worst in England and Wales by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The CQC told the council to urgently improve adult social care in a report in December 2009.

Cornwall Council agreed the rise despite having to make budget cuts of £100m over the next four years.
