The Social Care Institute for Excellence improves the lives of people of all ages by co-producing, sharing, and supporting the use of the best available knowledge and evidence about what works in practice.
We are a leading improvement support agency and an independent charity working with organisations that support adults, families and children across the UK.
Our work goes well beyond the traditional social care sector. We support citizen-led groups, national and local government, care, health and housing providers, and voluntary, private, community and faith groups.
We help individuals and organisations to keep children and adults safe from abuse and neglect, and deliver better social care, health, housing and support to children and adults.
This vision is underpinned by the way we work which is:
- Co-productive and collaborative: We co-produce our work with people who use services, their carers and local citizens to identify what works and how that knowledge can be put into practice. We promote equality and value diversity and human rights. We collaborate with partners to influence future policy and practice, and to increase our reach and impact.
- Innovative and customer-focused: We meet the changing needs of our diverse audiences and customers with new and better services and products that support the delivery of high quality services.
- Enterprising and expert: We seek new opportunities to promote our knowledge and skills throughout the care and support and other sectors. Our work is based on a rigorous approach to identifying good and developing practice.
