Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework Measures (NHS Information Centre)


This statistical report contains the final figures for the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) 2011-12 for England. The ASCOF has two purposes:

  1. Nationally, the ASCOF indicates the performance of social care in delivering better outcomes for users.
  2. Locally, the ASCOF assists in “benchmarking” and comparison between areas, thereby enabling councils to compare their results with others. This supports the “local account” of social care in each area.

These ASCOF measures for England are grouped under four familiar domain headings:

  1. Enhancing quality of life for people with care and support needs.
  2. Delaying and reducing the need for care and support.
  3. Ensuring people have a positive experience of care and support.
  4. Safeguarding people whose circumstances make them vulnerable and protecting from avoidable harm.
