Have you signed up to the social care commitment yet? message from BCPC
Black Country Partnership for care is urging its care providers to sign up to the Social Care Committment – a voluntary agreement about workforce quality.
Employers and employees across the whole of the adult social care sector are being encouraged to sign up to the commitment, pledging to improve the quality of the workforce. It is seen by the Department of Health as a key part of the solution to raising the standard of, and the public’s confidence in, care and support offered in our sector.
Further details on the Social Care Commitment and how to sign up can be found by clicking the following link – The Social Care Commitment
A number of useful videos have been developed which explain the process and also give the employers view on why the Social Care Commitment is so important to the sector and also the business benefits of making the Commitment. You can watch these videos by clicking here.
Dave Williams, area officer for Skills for Care (Midlands) said:
“This week, at Skills for Care, Area Teams across the country will be having a real push to promote the Social Care Commitment and encourage as many employers and employees as possible to sign up and make their pledge. I’ll be sending out a series of communications around the Social Care Commitment this week and I hope to see as many of you as possible taking the steps to sign up. I’m also available to come and talk to any of you about the process, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you would find this useful.
