The road ahead?: information for young people with learning difficulties, their families and supporters at transition
This report for the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) brings together the findings from three inter-linked investigations relating to the information needs of young people, their parents and supporters at transition. It was undertaken over a six month period between October 2003 and March 2004 and included: focus group interviews with young people, their parents and supporters; a systematic review of the literature on transition; and a review of the information already available for young people, parents and professionals, including an evaluation of materials by young people and parents. The project was carried out by the Norah Fry Research Centre (NFRC) in partnership with North Somerset People First (NSPF) and the Home Farm Trust (HFT).
The purpose of this guide is to support commissioners and providers of social care services to work effectively with refugees and asylum seekers.
Reports on the key messages from a roundtable discussion on technology in social care and how it can help support the goals of the Care Act. The event was jointly hosted by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and the Department of Health and is one of a series of roundtable discussions exploring how to improve care and support at a time of growing demand, demographic change and financial constraint. Key messages from the event are reported, and include: the need to establish a national and local vision; use technology to solve a specific problem; the need to test and co-produce technological and digital solutions with people who use services and carers; the need to develop knowledge and skills in the social care sector; the importance of digital inclusion; the role of technology in data-sharing and decision-making. The report includes summaries of presentations from Jon Rouse, Keith Spink, Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, Jim Thomas, Madeline Starr and Charlotte Black. The roundtable has also used to help inform the thinking of the National Information Board.
