Cordis Pulse: December 2023

Download our digest of policy and research.

Welcome to December’s edition of the CordisPulse – a monthly digest of key research and policy developments across the sectors in which Cordis Bright provides research and consultancy services, i.e. adult social care and health, children and young people's services, and criminal justice.

Cordis Bright has just finished working with the Autism Alliance (a UK partnership of not-for-profit organisations) to quantify the gap between demand and supply for specialist services. Like so many projects that Cordis Bright works on, the output would not have been possible without the active participation of many people, none of whom directly benefit but all saw a value in contributing their time and insight. Over thirty local authorities took the trouble to complete our survey, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) Autism and Learning Disability Group twice invited us to attend their meetings, providers willingly shared their experiences and understanding as well as completing another survey.

This show of support and engagement is much appreciated but it is not unique. We have found over the years that one of the defining characteristics of the health, social care and criminal justice sectors is that willingness by people who use services and the professionals who provide them to share their time and energy, to take the trouble to contribute to the sum of ideas and insights which grows all the time. Ultimately it is this ever-expanding pool of knowledge that becomes one of the main drivers for improving quality.

Peace and goodwill may feel in short supply right now but they are still the values of this holiday season. As 2023 draws to a close we wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate this contribution and to say thank you to all the people who have helped create the outputs of our work.
