SCIE works with local government organisations, citizens and communities to transform social care.

The sector faces unprecedented challenges and rebuilding what we had before COVID-19 is unlikely to succeed – we need to reimagine social care.

SCIE's comprehensive support unlocks the potential of adult social care services by:

  • working with leaders and practitioners to develop strengths-based practice which delivers impact
  • using data to drive better decisions and prevent demand escalating
  • developing system-wide, outcome-focused commissioning
  • helping organisations recover financially from COVID-19
  • optimising the use of technology to drive better care.

Local areas start in different places, so we tailor our support to reflect local circumstances. We always aim to develop practical plans to help them make real improvements.

Our work with the sector is guided by a national advisory group, chaired by Iain MacBeath, Director of Health and Wellbeing, Bradford Council, and made up of directors of adult social care and other key stakeholders.
