Summary

The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) measures how well care and support services achieve the outcomes that matter most to people. The ASCOF is used both locally and nationally to set priorities for care and support, measure progress and strengthen transparency and accountability.

This report focuses on the main findings for each measure in the ASCOF in 2018-19. Data are provided at council, regional and national level for each outcome.

The 2018-19 ASCOF report gives a summary of the measures in the framework. The report is complemented by an interactive Power BI report, which allows users to explore the data further. The raw data used in the report are available in the accompanying csv file.

1st November 2019: An error was identified for indicators 2A and 2C affecting two councils only. This has now been rectified and where necessary, the regional/national figures have also been updated.
