ADASS members received presentations from 5 agencies focussed on supporting sector-led improvement at their recent Gateshead seminar, namely:
· The Local Government Group
· Skills for Care
· Social Care Institute for Excellence
· Research in practice for Adults
· National Skills Academy - social care
The unanimous opinion of those present summed up by ADASS Workforce Network Chair Jo Cleary was – that’s great, we didn’t know that’s what you did and good to see it all in one place in a leaflet.
The challenge was laid to down to take things further through a single portal on the web. Thereby the participants thought life could be made easier for those seeking the best support, advice and knowledge. ADASS members clearly want a cooperative support service where organisations complement and augment each other rather than a competitive one where there is duplication and complexity.
CPEANOSE has searched web for the leaflet to no avail so has reproduced it here as a starter to the single portal:
