'Cuts forcing English councils to limit social care'
Almost 90% of councils in England no longer offer social care to people whose needs are ranked low to moderate, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (Adass) has said.
The group is warning cuts are making the care system "unsustainable".
The government says councils have been given an extra £1.1bn to help protect social care this year.
But charities say hundreds of thousands of people are struggling without help.
When someone applies for social care, their needs are determined as either critical, substantial, moderate or low.
In recent years the number of councils able to help those at the lower end of the scale has gone down as they struggle to balance their budgets.
