Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework in England, initial findings: 2013 to 2014

The Purpose of the ASCOF is two-fold • Nationally, the ASCOF will give an indication of the strengths of social care and success in delivering better outcomes for people who use services. • Locally, one of the key uses of the ASCOF is for ‘benchmarking’ and comparison between areas, enabling councils to compare their results with others. It will also support the “local account” of social care in an area by providing high-level information to underpin the narrative of these accounts.



Official statistics are produced impartially and free from political influence.
