The care and support reform programme is a joint venture between ADASS, the Local Government Association and Department of Health. It is designed to support local areas in implementing the care and support reforms in the context of the other changes and challenges for local health and care systems, including the Better Care Fund. View its website at http://www.local.gov.uk/care-support-reform
ADASS has partnered with the Local Government Association(LGA), NHS England, The Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS), Monitor, NHS Confederation and the Department of Health (DH) to deliver a programme of work to support the integration of health and social care. This work includes the development of a Toolkit, which should enable Health and Wellbeing Boards and local partners to understand the evidence and impact of different integrated care models on service users, as well as the associated impact on activity and cost to different parts of the health and care system. The Toolkit can be accessed via the following link Integrated Care Toolkit
