Making the economic case for social care (The Economics of Social Care Compendium, ESSENCE)

  Created on Monday, 26 Oct 2020. Posted in Health Economics | Social Care

Resources are always tight in social care, and these pressures have grown as a result of recent substantial cuts in local authority funding. Difficult choices have to be made about how to use available resources.

The ESSENCE project collated economic evidence on adult social care services, and made it available to decision-makers, managers, practitioners and users to inform their decisions. The ESSENCE Toolkit coveres a comprehensive collection of relevant research and summarised it with individual case summaries (33) as well as a searchable database of evidence (231 sources).
