Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) Review
London Councils, London

ADASS has been commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care to undertake a review of the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF). ADASS are working with The Institute of Public Care (IPC), Oxford Brookes University to engage with key sector stakeholders. The purpose of the review is to consider how ASCOF can be made fit for the future so that it measures outcomes properly. The project is seeking to answer the following questions:
• What measures do you want to keep?
• What measures do you want to change?
• What new measures do you want to introduce?
