Digital technology has the power to transform services and provides adult social care with huge opportunity. Technology also offers opportunities to help people maintain independence and improve outcomes using tech enabled care.

Skills for Care believes that developing digital leadership and growing the wider sector’s skills are inter-dependent. Growing and developing confident and skilled digital leaders will ensure the digital development of those they manage.
