Caring Times, June 2018

As part of their ‘Building a Caring World’ philosophy, Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) has launched a free ‘Care Practice Essentials’ toolkit, specifically tailored for developing nations in the Commonwealth.

The complimentary toolkit is available on both desktop and mobile app and contains the most essential policies, procedures, guidance and a care plan. The toolkit was launched at the Ageing In Common Conference at Wokefield Park, Reading, in April.

QCS has also committed to making the toolkit available to anyone involved in care provision in countries as diverse as Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda. The launch supports the QCS bursary which involved funding 20 delegates from developing nations within the Commonwealth to attend the Ageing in Common Conference.

QCS chief executive Mat Whittingham said it had long been an objective of QCS to offer practical support to the many thousands of people who provide care to elderly people in developing nations, but who could not access materials from the UK.

“We have a series of exciting announcements to support our ‘Building a Caring World’ philosophy over the next 18 months,” said Mr Whittingham.

Vic Rayner, executive director of the National Care Forum, which represents not-for-profit providers said the toolkit demonstrated QCS’s commitment to building a more connected care community across the globe.

“They are showing excellent leadership in providing these accessible and valuable resources to delegates attending the conference and freely available to a wider global audience,” said Ms Raynor.

“ We look forward to continue to work with them to ensure that the learning and resources from this unique event are widely promoted.”
