Making best use of resources
Think Local Act Personal is working with the Towards Excellence in Adult Social Care Programme to develop practical advice and guidance for council managers and their partners on how to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of the resources for adult social care.
We have published two reports and created a toolkit for councils called, "A Problem Shared: Making best use of resources".
- How to make the best use of reducing resources: a whole system approach
This paper, produced by ADASS, summarises the key components of a system designed to help councils to make the best use of available resources. It draws on documents from Government departments, academic studies and short-life groups.
- Use of resources in adult social care: a guide for local authorities
This Department of Health guide, was produced in 2009 to stimulate discussion and debate for local authorities as to how to commission and shape services for tomorrow by making best use of resources.
