The NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC) uses NICE’s methods and processes to develop social care guidance for NICE. NICE will use the guidance as a basis for its quality standards for social care.

They are not mandatory; they are intended for use in conjunction with the frameworks and regulation already in place, providing practical support to help drive up the quality of adult and children's care.
