Get involved in our work

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.

Current opportunities to get involved

Consultations

Take part in the framework consultation survey

The Person and community-centred approaches: Core Skills Education and Training Framework consulation is now available for the social care sector.  

This framework has been worked on in collaboration between Health Education England, Skills for Health and Skills for Care to develop a person and community-centred core skills education and training for the health and social care sector. 

Development of the framework has involved a wide range of stakeholders including citizen, patient and carer voice, voluntary sector organisations, Public Health England, Local Government, NHS England, Royal Colleges and the professional bodies, professional regulators and others.

A draft of the framework is now available and you are invited to review the draft framework and provide your comments and feedback by completing an on line survey.

Your responses to the survey will be treated confidentially and collated with other respondents to identify key themes and issues. The results of the survey will be used to further refine the framework, leading to the project completion during February 2017.

Please submit your completed survey as soon as possible and by Monday 30 January 2017 at the latest.

For further information please email the Skills for Health Framework Manager at: colin.wright@skillsforhealth.org.uk or call Colin Wright on 07768 998 109.
