IMPACT

Improving Adult Care Together

This month at IMPACT, we are walking, running, cycling, and swimming a collective 1,200km to raise money for Guide Dogs.

Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss which has a significant impact on their daily lives. Of those, around 180,000 rarely leave their homes alone and lead lonely, isolated lives.

Help us support this cause by donating to our fundraiser

IMPACT is the UK centre for implementing evidence in adult social care.  Working across the four nations and with co-production at its heart, we draw on insights from research, lived experience, and practice knowledge to make a difference to front-line services, and to people’s lives.

Good support isn’t just about ‘services’ – it’s about having a life.
