CfWI contributes to newly launched principles of workforce integration – CfWI Centre for Workforce Intelligence – 17 July 2014

“Skills for Care have launched new ‘Principles of Workforce Integration’ at the Local Government Association conference, designed to help care professionals to work together to meet people’s care and support needs.

Underpinning the six core principles is the idea that people who have care and support needs want care provided in straightforward ways that makes sense to them, reflecting their lives, needs and wishes.

The principles have been developed to support practitioners, managers and organisations to think about what integration means for their organisation and how effective workforce development can drive its implementation.”

Supporting Dementia Workers – guide to support social care workers working with people with dementia across England – Skills for Care – 21 May 2012

“Skills for Care have launched the ‘Supporting Dementia Workers’ guide to support social care workers working with people with dementia across England.

The case study based guide is launched to coincide with Dementia Awareness Week which starts today. Skills for Care is backing the campaign that aims to maximise awareness and understanding of Dementia including social care employers and the 1.56 million people who work in the sector.

The number of people with Dementia is expected to grow to 1.7 million by 2051 and Skills for Care estimates that at last half a million extra workers will be needed to help meet their needs.

“Skills for Care is backing National Dementia Week because we need to make sure that everyone who works in our sector has a very clear understanding of the needs of people with dementia” says Skills for Care CEO Sharon Allen.

“We are backing our commitment by launching a user friendly guide that uses real life case studies to help workers in our sector really understand what they can do to make sure that people with Dementia get the best and most dignified care possible.”?

Supporting Dementia Workers is an online resource and can be downloaded from the dementia pages.”
