NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Kent, Surrey and Sussex ARC (ARC KSS) is leading the national consortium on Adult Social Care and Social Work (ASCSW) along with eight ARC partners from across England. The consortium have just launched a report 'Developing consensus about the implementation priorities for Adult Social care and Social Work '.

The report sets out the approach to prioritisation, the topics considered, and the four topics selected to take forward as a priority nationally, which include:

  • Digital technologies and social care
  • Using community resources to improve wellbeing
  • Outcomes and need indicator tools
  • Integration: families experiencing intimate partners violence and abuse.
