Skills for Care offers support for care managers during COVID-19

Skills for Care

Skills for Care understands that registered managers are going through incredibly challenging times at the moment, and everyone at the organisation is humbled by the leadership, courage, creativity and resilience being shown by managers, who continue to provide the very best care for the people they support and their staff.

To help support the adult social care workforce, they’re working rapidly to develop a suite of useful resources for managers and services to access during the current pandemic, and beyond.

Support webinars

To ensure managers have the skills, knowledge and resources they need to lead an effective service, Skills for Care is developing a series of webinars on a range of topics to keep mangers up-to-date during the changing social care landscape.

Their subject experts, including partners from organisations like Digital Social Care and ACAS, are delivering webinars live which include key information on essential training to recruitment support.

The webinars are being recorded and shown for free on the Skills for Care website. Lavern Dinah, one of the participants on the recent ‘essential training’ webinar, said: “It was great to get information hot off the press! And to be able to ask questions so we could take advantage of this opportunity quickly – thank you!”

Other currently available webinars include the role of HR during COVID-19 and how to use technology effectively.

Advice line

There are so many questions that managers need the answers to in order to provide a safe and efficient service, and they aren’t always easy to find. A new advice line and email inbox aims to support those managing CQC regulated adult social care services through the COVID-19 crisis.

A team of knowledgeable experts can help you to access the latest information, resources, funding, online learning and other opportunities provided from Skills for Care, as well as directing you to the latest guidance and advice produced to support your service in these challenging times.

The team will be available to answer your questions Monday to Friday between 9.00 and 17.00.
