Social Care Solutions

The ASSIST platform empowers and enables people to be independent, take charge of their lives and to have choice and control over their care, support and wellbeing.

Since 2008, PPL UK has been leading the way in web-based social care solutions that empower and enable people to be independent, take charge of their lives and to have choice and control over their care, support and wellbeing.

We’re proud of the fact that we were the first to market with an eMarketplace for social care, and even prouder that since then we have remained at the forefront of our sector responding to the challenges of personalisation, the Care Act and Children and Families Act.

More than 30 local authorities are now using our powerful Assist platform which enables them to deliver social care more efficiently and effectively.

Assist includes a range of modular, flexible and configurable solutions ranging from information, advice and guidance platforms, through to self-serve online assessments, community directories, eMarketplaces, personal budget management tools and dynamic purchasing systems.

Together these modules provide a holistic, end-to-end solution for social care, helping people to help themselves – and helping local authorities to do more with less.
