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 delighted to be undertaking a project, supported and funded by Health Education England, to map the pre-registration nursing standards to social care settings. The aim is to increase understanding for students, employers and HEI colleagues of what placements in these settings can offer whilst providing guidance and insight into how learning outcomes could be achieved. We’ll be drawing together a working group of practitioners, and would like to include people from as many settings as possible.

We only have 12 places available on the working group so if you’d like to find out more and/or be considered to take part, please contact us at The first working group will take place on Tuesday 16 March.

Following consultation, we've reviewed and updated the content of our qualification criteria for the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership Management for Adult Care. The qualification criteria set out the minimum knowledge and skills requirements for qualifications that develop and confirm the competence of care and support workers in adult social care services in England. 

We're inviting you to review and comment on the draft content to ensure we've accurately reflected the needs of the sector and the development needs of adult social care workers. You can choose to comment on the whole qualification criteria, a single topic area, or a selection of topic areas.

The survey closes on Monday 12 April 2021.
