ESSENCE2 Project
March 2022

Dear Colleague,

We are writing to you today to share information about the ESSENCE Project.

The ESSENCE (EconomicS-of-Social-carE-CompEndium) project is an online resource which is free to access. It currently contains 18 case studies covering a range of key adult social care interventions as well as a database of relevant publications on a broader spectrum of adult social care interventions. Its aim is to support decision-makers to access and understand the economic evidence for adult social care interventions.

Asking for your input:

  • Please share the link to the ESSENCE project website with colleagues who may be interested in this information
  • Please get in touch with us by completing our form if you have evidence to share on the economics of adult social care interventions
  • Please provide feedback on how we can improve the information provided on the ESSENCE project website by completing our form
