The adult social care sector is an expanding market for software and technology suppliers.

More care providers are using data and technology to manage and deliver services. But not all of them understand the options and implications for their organisation, their staff and the people they support.

As a software or tech supplier, you can help your clients to develop their knowledge, policies and practices by directing them to our freely available resources and support.

We just ask that you acknowledge Digital Social Care as the producer of the information (and don’t charge for it).

Download free e-leaflet for clients

You can download and send them this leaflet about our resources and support: Going digital? Don’t go alone.

You can find further tips, and draft copy for sharing with your clients in the Data Protection and Cyber Security section below.

We will continue to update these pages – so please do keep returning to view it. And let us know what other information you would want us to consider including. Contact us at
