One portal - a world of social care knowledge

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:
