LaingBuisson’s comprehensive study into specialist care services for younger adults. Fourth edition. Published 30th July 2020 (404pp).

The fourth edition of LaingBuisson’s Adult Specialist Care UK market report is essential reading for anyone involved in this vital part of the UK’s social care sector, be they a provider, a commissioner, an investor, an advisor or a policy maker.

Written and researched by leading industry expert and commentator, William Laing, this industry standard report provides unique and in-depth 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 adults under the age of 65, which LaingBuisson estimates to be worth £12.5 billion across the whole of the UK. 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.

Written during the first months of the Coronavirus pandemic, the report assesses the adult specialist care market to have ‘passed the reliability test in the face of Covid-19’. Unlike many providers of care for older people, adult specialist care providers have not faced the existential threat of clients dying or of reduced admissions.

The greater risk to the sector from the pandemic may be in the medium to long term – with care for adults under the age of 65 being principally paid for by the state, it will become just one of many essential services looking for funding from a depleted public purse.

LaingBuisson expects the market will remain of interest to investors.

In an economy that is heading for uncertain times, adult specialist care, and supported living in particular, offers safe, long term, indexlinked returns. While not entirely without risks, the level of public funding and also public willingness to see the lifetime costs of users of these services covered offers a level of certainty that few other investments can offer.
