The SOLLA Care Advice Standard enables people to find quality assured information and advice. It provides consistency of information and advice on how an adult care need is identified, met and funded. It gives independent recognition and helps the public to identify those who will be able to provide quality assured information and advice.

The SOLLA Care Advice Standard is for those actively involved in the provision of information and advice for adult care and housing. It is awarded to an individual rather than an organisation.

Those with the Care Advice Standard will be listed on a register so that people seeking quality assured advice on their care options can find them.
