    :DThanks for all the suggestions.:D

    There has just been a thread where I used DPA for Deferred Payment Agreement but that is already taken by the Data Protection Act. In all the paperwork I have had from my LA they use DPA for the former.:confused:
    What about changing the later to DataPA?

    My LA also refer to the new "CRAG" as Statutory Guidance and SG is not taken at the moment. Other LA's may vary though.

    The New Care Act 2014 could become NCA.

    Didn't see this before.... Now my mind is working overtime trying to come up with an acronym :D

    CASS
    CrASS guidance maybe but don't know what the R would be..... :D

    NCA sounds about right - but National Crime Agency already have that one...... Maybe they have merged ;) :D

    Just to help it's official title is.....
    Care and Support Statutory Guidance
    :D:D

    The acronym team in the DoH didn't really consider the problems this new name would cause.
