About SCIE  _______________________________________________________________

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) improves the lives of people who use care services by sharing knowledge about what works. We are an independent charity working with adults, families and children’s social care and social work services across the UK. We also work closely with related services such as health care and housing.

We gather and analyse knowledge about what works and translate that knowledge into practical resources, learning materials and services including training and consultancy. Our work helps to improve the knowledge and skills of those working in care services. This includes managers, frontline staff, commissioners and trainers. People and their families who use these services also use our resources.

SCIE aims to co-produce all our work with people who use services and carers. We are committed to co-production and have developed a set of principles and a strategy to achieve this. SCIE’s Co-production Network guides and supports our work with people who use services, carers and equalities groups.

Our products include:

The trainer…..

I use SCIE‘s safeguarding resources often in training, and publicise them with other trainers and providers. They’re excellent.

SCIE staff support a charity called UK Sport Association for People with Learning Disability (UKSA). SCIE’s relationship with UKSA is on a purely staff level and is not a formal partnership between the two organisations.

UKSA is a strategic, umbrella and coordinating body working with agencies and athletes from all four home countries. Its mission is to encourage the development of sustainable, integrated quality sports provision for people with learning disability from grass roots through to elite international level. UKSA is working toward several high-profile sporting events, most notably the London Paralympics later this year. It is supporting table tennis, athletics and swimming.
