The Covid-19 pandemic has brought to public attention the difficulties faced in social care, particularly the issues surrounding human contact as necessitated by face to face care. The pandemic provided a huge drive for changing the way we provide adult social services. To explore the innovative approaches taken during the pandemic in adult social care, EY and ADASS set a roundtable discussion of directors of adult social care and tech provider representatives in October 2020. The below write-up summarises the key issues and experiences of the attendees and potential solutions. We hope this write up allows others in the social care sector benefit from the thought-provoking conversation that was had.
