Get involved in our work

A young woman supporting an older woman

We work with care organisations, people who need care and support and carers, and other partners to make sure our activities reflect their needs.

Whether you are part of a large care provider, a new business expanding into social care or a person who directly employs a personal assistant, there are many opportunities where you can contribute to our on-going work.

You can get involved by taking part in research, responding to consultations, providing case study examples, commenting on draft products, co-producing new policies or agreeing to be a study site.

All our consultations and research projects are promoted in our fortnightly enewsletter. Sign up to our mailing list so you don’t miss out on new opportunities.

A national recruitment campaign in adult social care: have your say

The adult social care sector in England faces challenges to recruit enough staff with the right values.

Despite numerous efforts, this challenge continues, as unemployment rates have fallen, competition from other sectors has increased and the demand for adult social care staff has grown 

We’d love to hear what you think about a national recruitment campaign for adult social care in England.

The campaign would aim to raise awareness of adult social care careers, break down some of the negative stereotypes, and inspire people with the right values to come and work in our sector. 

Find out more about how you can help.
