Social Care Institute for Excellence
The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE, pronounced "sky") is a UK charity, set up by government and funded by the UK Department of Health and the devolved administrations in Wales and Northern Ireland.
SCIE identifies and disseminates the knowledge base for good practice in all aspects of social care throughout the United Kingdom social care. The Institute produces guides in different formats, including specialist tool kits and more general learning materials, covering management and policy issues as well as day to day services.
In August 2012, the charity was shortlisted for a Charity Times Award. The partnership between SCIE, Technology Trust (formerly CTT) and Lasa on the Get Connected project have also been recognised, with the project being named as one of six finalists in the Cross-Sector Partnership of the Year category.
