The Social Care Commitment makes its mark

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: News, Workforce

Those who have signed up to the Social Care Commitment are starting to see the positive impact it can have on the quality of care they deliver, and the training and development of their staff says Skills for Care.

The commitment - which involves signing up to a series of ‘I will…’ statements and tasks that put those statements into practice - is a Department of Health initiative that has been developed by the sector so that it is fit for purpose and makes a real difference to those signing up.

Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb has called for “every employer and every employee working in adult social care to go online and make the commitment” and those that have already done so have quickly realised the benefits of the Social Care Commitment.

In a recent evaluation, 85 percent of those who had made the commitment said that they already have, or expect to see, an increase in the quality of care they provide, whilst 83 percent said that it has led, or will lead, to improvements in how staff are trained and developed.

To find out more about the commitment and how you can sign up visit the Social Care Commitment website.
