Ursell joins Skills for Care board
Registered Nursing Home Association (RNHA) chief executive Frank Ursell has been appointed to the board of Skills for Care, the workforce development body for adult social care. Skills for Care says that, following changes announced at its AGM in October, its board now includes representation from a broader scope than ever before, giving more organisations with an interest in social care a chance to raise the issues that concern them. Mr Ursell joins existing employer representation from the Association for Real Change (James Churchill), UK Home Care Association (Bill McClimont), Local Government Association (Vic Citarella and Gareth Barnard) and the National Care Association (Nadra Ahmed). Skills for Care also welcomed its new chair, Donald Hoodless, who replaces former chair Arthur Keefe, now retired. Mr Hoodless will also be chair of the recently launched Sector Skills Council, Skills for Care and Development.
