Planning4care provided the intelligence that social care and health commissioners and providers need, in order to improve service planning and delivery.

Information and analysis from Planning4care enabled users to understand likely future care needs and service requirements under a range of alternative future planning scenarios. Planning4care 2.1 launched in January 2011, providing a range of powerful future planning scenarios, the latest demographic projections and social care data from the National Adult Social Care Intelligence System (NASCIS), and an  easy-to-use web interface.

Support for this project has discontinued, but if you are interested in the work we did please visit Planning for Care.
