The Better Security, Better Care programme and the Data Security and Protection Toolkit supports many of the national and local initiatives on data sharing, digital developments and cyber security.

At a local level, many CCGs, Integrated Care Systems, other NHS organisations and local councils are also supporting adult social care providers with the DSPT, and this will continue.

The Better Security, Better Care Local Support Partners will reach out to their local partners and networks and ensure that the support they offer fits in the best way locally.

The Better Security, Better Care programme also includes NHS England & Improvement Regional Leads, Ageing Well Teams and the Association of Directors of Adult Services (ADASS).

The NHS England & Improvement regional leads are linking in to CCGs and Integrated Care Systems to ensure they are aware of the work with care providers.

ADASS is supporting with links to local councils. And the Local Government Association is providing guidance and support to commissioners on the DSPT.

At a national level, Digital Social Care links in with wider government projects.
