The Care and Support White Paper published in July 2012, set out the government’s vision for a reformed care and support system, building on the 2010 Vision for Adult Social Care and framework for transparency and quality in adult social care. The ASCOF for 2013/14 will support councils to rise to the challenge of delivering key White Paper priorities by providing a clear focus for local priority setting and improvement, and by strengthening the accountability of councils to local people.

Progress report that marks two years of work by the Social Work Reform Board implementing the recommendations of the Social Work Task Force as laid out in its report "Building a Safe, Confident Future".
Briefing that examines issues such as the role of health and wellbeing boards and commissioners; the impact of climate change; integration; community and personalisation; leadership and reputation; and risk management and business continuity.
A CSJ report ahead of the Government’s White Paper on social care.
Paper that shows how the personalisation agenda encourages innovation, offering the potential to create new markets around localised and individual needs, to focus fiscal resources directly and discretely, and to enable small groups of individuals to ‘positively disrupt’ a complex and opaque system.
It begins with a potted history of personalisation, and ends with five recommendations for the implementation of personalisation, whatever the sector, in a way that increases the availability and use of new, communitybased approaches to support and inclusion.
This report argues that truly transformational public innovation requires creative decommissioning: actively challenging incumbent service models and mindsets to invest properly in new approaches. As public resources are increasingly precious, creative decommissioning will become a critical
capability for public services.
Report that describes a ground-breaking initiative in the development of personalisation in adult social care. By working in partnership, Southwark Council has:

- Created Individual Service Funds (ISF) for more flexible services

- Developed a more dynamic and respectful relationship between a service provider and commissioner

Scoping report that explores the implications of implementing key Dilnot and Law Commission proposals in respect of assessment and eligibility for publicly funded adult social care.
It explores the Dilnot Commission‟s recommendations, and those of the Law Commission, for a new model of assessment and a national eligibility threshold for publicly funded adult social care in England. It also discusses the implications for these processes of establishing limited liability for individuals by the proposed capped lifetime contribution of £35,000 for people paying for care.
This paper gives voice to service users’ fears and concerns about risk. It identifies additional risks to those commonly identified by professionals and policy-makers and explores how perceptions of risk and rights are significantly different for mental health service users.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) commissioned this paper as part of its programme on risk, trust and relationships in an ageing society, which aims to explore how risk features in the lives of adults who use care and support.
