The approach to Sector Led Improvement for Adult Social Care in the North West was approved by the Board at its first meeting on 8 October 2012 and was firmly sector led.  The approach forms part of and complements a wider approach to Sector Led Improvement across all local authority services Sector Led Improvement looks at the evidence of how we assess ourselves and are accountable to our population, demonstrates how the North West collectively works to improve and risk access ourselves and to do this through a strong, cohesive and responsible methodology.

NW ADASS Sector Led Improvement Regional Account 2017

We are pleased to announce the publication of our NW ADASS Regional Account 2017  Our commitment in 2016 was to develop a more flexible and dynamic sector-led improvement programme and we have worked hard with our members to refine our approach, review methodology and governance structures, which in turn have strengthened our grip on the continuous improvement challenge across adult social care.

Building on the successful work in previous years, a refresh of branch governance and the development of a more robust approach to data and intelligence we aim to deliver a comprehensive and meaningful regional programme of activity in 2017/18 that supports the sector in times of financial difficulty.

This report aims to provide a brief overview of the past 12 months and capture our branch priorities for the year ahead.
