What we do

Skills for Care supports adult social care employers to deliver what the people they support need and what commissioners and regulators expect. We do this by helping employers get the best from their most valuable resource - their people.

Our practical support helps leaders and managers recruit, develop and lead their staff, retaining them from entry level right through to senior leadership and management roles.

We're the organisation for registered managers, supporting them to develop best practice, keep up-to-date and share ideas with like-minded managers.
