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

 

We’re conducting a piece of user research to investigate how to make it easier for you to find what you need on our website.

The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete. It asks about your experience, levels of satisfaction and for feedback when finding out about the Skills for Care offer of support for registered managers using the www.skillsforcare.org.uk website.

Take the survey

We want to find out what your staff think about working in the sector to help improve their experience.

This online survey is the first of its kind for adult social care and it’s the North West that is starting the conversation about improving the experience of working in the sector. To take part, you’ll be sent a survey link to share with your employees.

Find out more.

The survey is being undertaken by Skills for Care and Local Government Association, supported by Department for Health and Social Care, Care Quality Commission (CQC) and North West Association of Directors of Adult Social Services.

Skills for Care is doing a short survey to find out why some people with a learning disability are more likely to access a free annual health check than others.

We want to hear from people with a learning disability (and family members and carers), GPs (that work in  surgeries that both do and don’t offer annual health checks), and health and social care providers that support people with a learning disability.

Please click here to complete the short survey. The deadline for responses is 17.00 on Monday 25 November 2019.

The survey asks about your awareness of annual health checks, and what we can do to increase the number of people that access the free checks.

You can also download a leaflet and a basic presentation to promote the survey.
