Description/Abstract

This paper describes a system dynamics model for social care, developed in collaboration with a local authority
in England, as part of the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Care Life Cycle
project based at the University of Southampton. The model was populated with data from a wide
range of sources, local and national. We present some illustrative results, and discuss the process of model
development and the challenges around data collection. We also discuss the benefits derived from codeveloping
such a model with practitioner users and as part of a multi-disciplinary team involving demographers
and social statisticians.
