A problem shared: making best use of resources in adult social care

Report designed to support sector-led improvement. It aims to:

  • review the evidence about how budget reductions have been achieved so far, and draw out lessons that can be learned
  • pull together messages from research and guidance produced since 2009
  • reinforce the importance of benchmarking, sharing good practice and developing a stronger, more accessible evidence base
  • suggest some next steps, including further tools and guidance that could help the sector manage future budget pressures.
