Towards Excellence in Adult Social Care (TEASC)

TEASC is a programme to help councils improve their performance in adult social care. The programme is led by a partnership board and is delivered by the sector on a regional basis.

The purpose of the programme is to support and challenge local government to deliver excellent adult social care services. Through a local, regional and national partnership programme TEASC underpins the introduction of new policy and helps to sustain proven cost effective, high quality services tailored to individual need. It works with and for local government and its partners to enable them to take responsibility for their own improvement.

The programme is based on the sector's confidence that this approach is best able to improve outcomes for local people and to identify risks. The experience of sector-led improvement in local government as a whole demonstrates how it is able to improve council's performance and manage the risk of underperformance.
