SCIE consultation response: Independence, well-being and choice: Our vision for the future of social care for adults in England

Published: July 2005

SCIE’s response to the adult social care green paper, derived from our ever-increasing knowledge of adult social care services, gained from our extensive stakeholder collaboration and our commitment to user- and carer-defined outcomes. As the key organisation tasked with developing the knowledge base for social care, SCIE believes it is important to examine the implications of changes proposed in Independence, well-being and choice. SCIE believes, therefore, that the implementation of the green paper should signal a determination by central government to develop the knowledge base for adult social care services and to refine its proposals in the light of that knowledge.
