Adult Social Care

IEWM works closely with the West Midlands’ branch of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) and has a Joint Improvement Programme that provides support to councils in the region through a sector led approach (link to plan on a page).

The region has developed a proactive sector led improvement programme that brings together a peer challenge programme, performance monitoring and a focus on use of resources.

The programme is supported by an active assistant director (ADs) network and various thematic groups (i.e. Carers, Personalisation, NHS Continuing Healthcare, Learning Disability, Performance, etc.) that provide opportunities to share knowledge, challenges and innovation across the region.
