Business Continuity Planning

From exceptionally bad weather, a fuel shortage or a outbreak of flu, to financial or quality problems, there are many circumstances that can disrupt services provided by the adult social care sector.

The CPA is producing guidance and templates to help independent and voluntary providers ensure continuity of care, and to ensure their business can continue, if a problem occurs. They are being produced in collaboration with CPA members, ADASS and the Department of Health and Social Care. They will include top tips, checklists, links to useful resources, and sources of advice and support.
