Over recent months, ADASS has conducted a number of member surveys which have focused on different aspects of care, support and safeguards. The latest of these member surveys which were undertaken in February and March 2022 have revisited some of the issues which we have explored in previous surveys.The results are set out in two short reports which are intended to be read together.  The first report looks at council’s contingency planning and waiting times, whilst the second focuses on the provision of day services. Together these reports paint a picture of current challenges and the vital work councils are undertaking to change way that key services and supports are delivered and experienced.

Please find here the Social Care Winter Contingencies and Waiting Surveys March 2022 report and the Commissioning or Providing Day Services report. 

N.B. The Commissioning or Providing Day Services report was revised on 11.04.22 to correct rounding errors. It also incorporates a recent review and update of the April 2021 data.
