Skills for Care

What our organisation does to support people with care and support needs:

Skills for Care supports adult social care employers to deliver what the people they support need and what commissioners and regulators expect.

We're the organisation for Registered Managers and our practical support helps leaders and managers recruit, develop and lead their staff, retaining them from entry level right through to senior leadership and management roles.

Our local area teams provide information on our tools, offer tailored support and can put you in touch with local networks, initiatives, and opportunities.

Skills for Care is the sector’s leading source of workforce intelligence and can provide expert insight into its workforce.

What we will do to Make it Real

1. We use our communication channels and networks to tell social care employers, Registered Managers and organisations that support people with direct payments about Making it Real. This will include:
a. An article in our twice-weekly enews
b. An article in the Registered Manager’s newsletter
c. A blog on the information hub for individual employers and PAs
d. An article in the quarterly newsletter for individual employers and those that support them
e. Embedding the Making it Real document on the information hub for individual employers and PAs
f. Inviting TLAP to present to delegates at the series of local networking events for people supporting and employing PAs.

2. We will encourage social care employers to use ‘Making it Real’ as a framework for involving people who access their services so they can have a good life.

3. When we are invited to speak at events we will encourage them to ensure that people who access care and support and involved in the programme too.

How we will co-produce and with whom

We do not directly deliver services but will involve people who access services in our work.

For example:
- Via our PA Framework steering group.
- Co-producing local network events for people supporting and employing PAs.
- To inform the development of specific resources.
