Simon said: "The Chancellor has announced an additional £2 billion to social care in England over the next three years to allow local authorities to plan now to provide security and dignity for all in their old age.
"Hammond has identified a significant burden on the NHS, with the elderly occupying hospital beds and the need to provide greater security for the older people in our communities.
"This further commitment provides funding for local authorities which should create capacity, freeing up space in hospitals.
"Further plans and talks of a strategic approach for how to deal with the ageing population should further assist in this area."
The increase - which will add an average of £240 to the bills of self-employed workers - was described as a "modest but welcome change".
The Chancellor has defended plans for a 2% rise in National Insurance for self-employed workers - arguing it makes the system more "fair".
Chancellor Philip Hammond shed his strait-laced image and showed a more humorous side as he packed his first Budget with jokes.
