Welcome to the NWADCS portal, this is a space for North West local authorities and their partners to communicate, share practice and collaborate on regional activity. There are some additional resources only available to local authorities so if you have received an invitation to register please do so.
Register for the portal
Much of the content on the portal is only available for registered users and we encourage you to register so you can access all the relevant resources on the site and participate in discussion forums.

Regional purchasing systems
There are four regional purchasing systems to support the commissioning of children's placements for North West authorities; these cover fostering, residential, supported accommodation and SEND placements for children.
Training and guidance
To support regional workstreams there are some training and guidance sessions open to local authorities and provider of children's social care and education placements.
