Michelle Dyson, Director General for Adult Social Care, Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has written to all local authorities and social care providers, encouraging employers to tell DHSC about the deaths of all workers in the adult social care sector, regardless of role or employer, including volunteers.

DHSC is committed to doing all it can to ensure that employers, families, and the people who they cared for are given the support they need. Completing this information ensures their response remains as effective as possible.

DHSC appreciate that this is another reporting requirement at an incredibly difficult moment for providers and have designed this process to be as light-touch as possible. If you have any queries regarding this process, please send them to ASCcovidinform@dhsc.gov.uk.

You can read the letter here, which shares how you can submit this information.
