October 2014 - Skills for Care, for the Care and Support Reform Programme
Our prospectus provides an overview of the workforce development resources developed to support implementation of the Care Act.
The Local Government Association (LGA), Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), Care Providers Alliance (CPA), and the Department of Health (DH) worked together through the Care and Support Reform Programme to ensure that councils, providers and other partners are successful in their implementation of the Care Act’s provisions.
As part of this work, a joint programme office has been established to help bring the necessary changes to policy and practice into reality.
For further information on the resources available to support local implementation visit the implementing your programme web pages.
Workforce planning and workforce commissioning are key elements in the implementation of the Care Act.
Local authorities can use their National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) return to better understand the profile of their workforce through our key information and statistics reports and dashboard reports.
