Managing risk in adult social care

Supporting councils and their partners to identify and manage sustainability and delivery risks

We support system leaders in local authorities in defining and understanding their financial and/or other risks and communicating these effectively to other system leaders. We also support the management of risk as it relates to commissioning, market sustainability and market shaping in line with the requirements of the Care Act.

We take as our starting point a recognition that even the best performing councils will be experiencing risks and challenges in the current financial climate. To this end we have developed a number of sector-led improvement tools and resources to support the sector in managing and mitigating financial and other risks to sustainable adult social care.
