WM-ADASS launched its Digital Network on 1 July 2021. The network includes adult social care digital leads from each of our 14 councils along with representation from Think Local Act Personal.

The Network will meet bi-monthly to support the West Midlands Digital Delivery Programme providing information, improvement and best practice sharing for activists across the region. It will also:

  • create a plan across health and care on areas for joint digital working and collaboration
  • complete self-assessments for each of our 14 local authorities on supporting care at home with technology, using the LGA Care Technology Diagnostic and Planning Resource
  • support other WMADASS networks' digital activity

The Network is sponsored by Pete Fahy, Director of Adult Services, Coventry City Council, chaired by Marc Greenwood, Head of Business Systems and Improvement at Coventry City Council, and managed by Abby Vella, Digital Lead, WM ADASS.
