Employing Assistive Technology in Adult Social Care Cover

Tunstall has supported the development of the County Councils Network’s (CCN) latest Analysis Report: Employing Assistive Technology in Adult Social Care. The report examines the vital role of technology in the future of the adult social care system in England, and makes a series of recommendations ahead of the expected reforms in autumn.

It follows a survey of CCN's 36 member authorities of which 17 responded (47%), a comprehensive review of relevant literature and an expert roundtable comprising representatives of CCN's member authorities involved in the commissioning and strategic delivery of social care services.

This report provides unique insight into the status of assistive technology in local authorities, in terms of strategy, integration and impact on other care services, as well as making a series of recommendations to Government, including the introduction of a National Strategic Framework for integrating Assistive Technology into social care.
