All our work is co-produced with people who use services and carers, care providers, commissioners and policymakers. We work across both adults and childrens services. SCIEs evaluation of our Care Act programme was flexible, thorough and was undertaken with sensitivity to local pressures. Recommendations made have proved to be a good basis for making improvements. I would encourage other authorities to consider this type of approach and believe SCIE provide this in an objective and professional way.

Policy implementation support Work with us to develop, deliver and evaluate your policy implementation plans, based on our knowledge from across the country and across sectors.
