Implementing your programme

This section is for people working in social care and implementing the reforms. The pages set out the learning and development resources, practice guidance and practical tools available to support the sector, as well as those currently in development.

You can navigate the information using the heading below (based on the structure of the statutory guidance) or by using the index of implementation products. There is also a separate index of implementation support for care providers.

Each item has been commissioned and developed in response to needs identified by social care staff, and will be co-produced under the direction of the Local Government Association (LGA), the Department of Health (DH) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) – who together make up the joint Programme Management Office (PMO).These pages will be updated in November to reflect the new support offer for the 2015-16 financial year.
