This report helps to inform and support improvement in adult social care. It also provides an overview of the progress of councils in England towards ensuring better care and support in the context of the 26% savings which they have been required to make over four years by the Coalition government. Overall, the progress made by councils in delivering services for people has been impressive, given the economic environment in which they have been operating. There is a consistent picture of improvement nationally against the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) indicators despite the sector having made £3.53bn of savings over the period.
