Local authorities which run their own in-house adult social care services should complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit for social care for those services. This is separate from the DSPT for local authorities as an entity.

The DSPT should be completed every year. The deadline for 2021/22 submissions is 30 June 2022.

This webinar recording highlights the key issues that local authorities with in-house services should consider when completing their DSPT for social care.
