As part of its ‘Building a Caring World’ philosophy, QCS has launched a free ‘Care Practice Essentials’ toolkit, specifically tailored for developing nations in the Commonwealth.
The toolkit was revealed at the Ageing in Common Conference at Wokefield Park, Reading.
Mat Whittingham, Chief Executive Office of QCS, said: “It has long been an objective of QCS to start to offer practical support to the many thousands of people who are providing care to the elderly in developing nations, but who cannot access materials that we benefit from in the UK. We have a series of exciting announcements to support our ‘Building a Caring World’ philosophy over the next 18 months.”
QCS has also committed to making the toolkit available to anyone involved in care provision in countries as diverse as Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda. The launch supports the QCS bursary which involved funding 20 delegates from developing nations within the Commonwealth to attend the Ageing in Common Conference.
The complimentary toolkit is available on both desktop and mobile app and contains the most essential policies, procedures, guidance and a care plan.
Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum, said: “This initiative from QCS shows their commitment to building a more connected care community across the globe. They are showing excellent leadership in providing these accessible and valuable resources to delegates attending the conference and freely available to a wider global audience. We look forward to continue to work with them to ensure that the learning and resources from this unique event are widely promoted.”
