The NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care uses NICE’s methods and processes to develop social care guidance for NICE.
The following guidelines have been developed by the NCCSC and are available on the NICE website:
- Child abuse and neglect
- Home care: delivering personal care and practical support to older people living in their own homes
- Intermediate care including reablement
- Older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions
- Transition between inpatient hospital settings and community or care home settings for adults with social care needs
- Transition between inpatient mental health settings and community and care home settings
- Transition from children’s to adults’ services for young people using health or social care services
Guidelines on the following topics are currently in development:
- Care and support of older people with learning disabilities
- Service model for people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour
- Service user and carer experience
- Decision making and mental capacity
The NCCSC sets up guideline committees to look at the evidence available, comment on the draft guidance and make recommendations. The committees also advise on how best to share the guidance and support implementation.
Committee members include people who use, manage, deliver and commission care and support services.
The NCCSC also supports the dissemination of NICE quality standards.
