Opening a care organisation

When you’re setting up a new care organisation, Skills for Care can help you to:

  • plan the staff that your service needs, and know how to recruit them
  • induct and develop staff in line with the required standards
  • support your staff e.g. through effective supervision and people performance management
  • develop your managers e.g. through qualifications and local networks.

We can also support you with your first CQC inspection to help you to understand what ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ care looks like and give you practical tips to help you to achieve it.

Resources to help

Our ‘Recommendations for CQC providers’ guide outlines our practical support around recruitment and retention, learning and development, and leadership and management practice. It links to useful webpages and free guides to help.
