Skills for Care gets £3m from DoH

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

Skills for Care has received £3m from the Department of Health to launch phase two of a programme to shape the future social care workforce. The New Types of Worker programme is currently identifying how roles need to adapt to deliver the health and social care reforms outlined in the White Paper, Our Health, Our Care, Our Say. Skills for Care chief executive Andrea Rowe said the programme had already provided some fascinating insights into the way social care roles need to change to provide more person-centred care. “We will now establish what skills, competencies and qualifications people who work in these roles need to acquire in order to deliver the White Paper, and what barriers need to be addressed for them to make that journey,” said Ms Rowe.
