Comments Off on Launch of new Driving Up Quality Code

The National Skills Academy for Social Care has been delighted to welcome the launch of the new Driving Up Quality initiative in learning disabilities. Driving Up Quality, which includes both a code of practice for providers and commissioners to sign up to, and an easily accessible self-assessment guide, is the brainchild of a group of learning disability service providers, alongside a range of sector partners.

The group came together in the wake of the Winterbourne View scandal, both to demonstrate a clear commitment on the part of providers to high quality services, and to provide a practical way to put that commitment into practice. Driving Up Quality is designed to improve standards of care and support and ensure a focus on the individual.
