The quality of adult social care matters. It matters because people who use services should be able to expect person centred care that is safe, effective, caring and responsive. This care should be supported by good leadership and sustained by good use of resources.
SCIE is one of the partners in the Quality Matters initiative, a collective offer from national health and social care organisations who have come together with the aim of supporting the sector to improve quality through collaboration. The other partners are:
- Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS)
- Care Provider Alliance (CPA)
- Care Quality Commission (CQC)
- Local Government Association (LGA)
- National Dignity Council
- NHS England
- Skills for Care
- Think Local Act Personal (TLAP)
The partners have worked together to develop Unlocking capacity: smarter together - a resource to inspire systems leaders to take their next step on the journey of collaborative working.
