Adult Social Care – Quality Matters

The quality of adult social care matters. It matters because people who use services should be able to expect person-centred care that is safe, effective, caring and responsive. This care should be supported by good leadership and sustained by good use of resources.

This document sets out a shared commitment to high-quality, person-centred adult social care. It has been produced to make a difference in care services by working across the sector with people who use these services and their carers.
