What we do

IPC works for better outcomes through well-run, evidence-based public care. We help to improve the quality and impact of public care services and to deliver value for money.

We work across the British Isles with local, regional and national governments, NHS organisations, as well as private and voluntary sector providers of care and support. Now approaching our 30th year, we are recognised experts across the public care arena with a strong reputation for thought leadership.

We can support you with:

  • Children's services - we can help you to address the entire continuum of need across children's social care as our experience spans early help, child in need, child protection, looked-after-children, care leavers and disabled children
  • Adults' services - we have expert skills in a range of areas including older people's services, learning disabilities, and substance misuse services
  • Housing for older people - we have developed guidance and good practice briefings in recognition of the importance of housing and neighbourhoods to the health and well-being of older people
  • Market shaping - we can help you meet the the new obligations placed on English local authorities and others by the Care Act 2014 to shape a diverse and sustainable care market
