digital resource and support for councils
This resource centre has been created by LGA and Rethink Partners to bring together in one easily accessible space the vast range of support tools, articles, masterclasses and other programmes which we have developed together to provide guidance and inspiration to councils seeking to realise your ambitions for care technology, adopting digital tools and solutions in social care.
