If you have completed the DSPT to STANDARDS MET in the last 12 months you are required to take the following action

The questions within the DSPT were updated on the 1st December 2020, so even if you published your DSPT in November 2020 (or before) you will need to sign in again to make sure that your submission is up to date for the 2020/2021 DSPT Year.

Why do I need to do this?

  • As you have published the DSPT before at Standards Met, this should not take you too long to do.  You will need to sign into your DSPT account and answer the new questions.. Any questions that have not been changed from the previous version will have your answers carried over.

What if I need more help?

  • The new version of the Toolkit is written in much plainer language and each question has comprehensive guidance as to what is required, so we think most providers should find it very straightforward.
  • Digital Social Care have created a guidance document to show the changes in the new Toolkit:  Click here
