Aims and Objectives

Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) provide guides to support people with autism and/or learning difficulties during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

People with learning disabilities and autistic people have the same rights as the rest of the population to live fulfilled lives as active members of families and communities. Practice in social work and occupational therapy is underpinned by human rights and the Mental Capacity Act (MCA), the legal framework which asserts and supports people’s rights to make their own decisions.

These guides are aimed at supporting you and enabling you to provide support care as safely and proactively as possible.  These also provide links to additional resources you may be interested in.

The three guides on this webpage are for:

Social Workers and Occupational Therapists

Care Staff and Personal Assistants

Carers and families
