A quality improvement framework to support self-evaluation for appropriate adult services in Scotland
This framework is for local authorities and their partners to support self-evaluation of appropriate adult services. It is designed to lead to improvement in services. It is adaptable and can be used flexibly to undertake proportionate self-evaluation irrespective of geography, size or design of the service. Improved outcomes and experiences of people who receive support are at the heart of the guidance.
It also focuses on how well local authorities, often working in partnership with key stakeholders, design and deliver a rights-based, high-quality, statutory service. The Care Inspectorate’s vision is for world-class social care and social work in Scotland, where everyone, in every community experiences high-quality care, support and learning, tailored to their rights, needs, and wishes.
