New guidelines on reducing violence against care staff


Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Skills for Care and the Department of Health are soon to release updated guidelines for employers and individuals to assess and reduce the risk of physical and verbal abuse of 1.5 million adult social care workers.

Violence against social care staff remains a major concern for employers and workers so Skills for Care has worked with the Department of Health to produce updated guides for employers and their staff containing examples of policies, procedures, training and approaches to dealing with incidents.

Once released, the guidelines will be available on the Skills for Care website: www.skillsforcare.org.uk
