A new network designed to drive transformation across the care sector has been launched.
Developed in partnership with the Cass business school, the Centre for Creativity and Innovation (CC&IC) is a partnership of care providers seeking to innovate to improve the care experience they provide while enhancing their business performance.
Chris Gage, founder of CC&IC and managing director of Ladder to the Moon, (pictured) said: “We enable care organisations to meet more of the CQC characteristics for outstanding service – 55% of which, by the way, refer to creativity and innovation.
“We work hands on with leaders in care organisations in a way in which unlocks the creative potential in all their staff and helps develops the mindset, tools and processes needed to inspire creative confidence. In doing so we help people and organisations thrive.”
Members of the network include Care England, National Care Forum, WCS Care, Forest Healthcare, Graham Care, Keychange Charity and Elizabeth Finn Homes.
CC&IC uses a mix of business insight and quality assurance with fun methods to allow senior leaders and frontline carers alike to develop the skills and processes that release inspiring ideas and turn them into useful, practical actions that improve wellbeing outcomes and business performance.
Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive of Care England, said: “We are extremely proud to be one of the first founding associate members of CC&IC as we believe if care services are going to be fit for purpose in the 21st Century we need innovation and creativity and firmly feel CC&IC will be a catalyst for this transformation.”
