From time to time ADASS produces substantial documents, usually but not necessarily through its Policy Networks, establishing fundamental policy lines on discrete areas of our work.

These publications, usually prepared or otherwise commissioned by serving directors, are influential both in helping central and local government develop their own policy lines, and in setting a benchmark against which other organisations can test their own ideas.

If you are looking for our members' and adult social care surveys, they are all collected here.

Similarly, over the course of the year, ADASS is asked to respond to policy, consultations and other initiatives - mainly but not necessarily originating from Central Government. Responses can either be made by our Policy Networks, National Leads, the Presidential Team or by Regional Networks.
