About these guides

We've co-produced these guides with The Social Care Institute for Excellence. The idea is to create something that gives you key information for social care topics in a simple format. 

They are for people who don't have the time to read large guidelines and quality standards.

We'd love to know what you think. Each guide has a link to a survey where you can leave feedback. 

Tailored resources

In addition to the quick guides, we also have tailored resources on a number of topics. These contain key messages and are designed to help you put our guidance and standards into practice.
