Your local registered managers network

RMN-web-imageGood managers and leaders are committed to working with others and embedding best practice through networking, sharing information and growing their knowledge. This is why Skills for Care facilitates over 150 networks across England for registered managers in adult social care, giving them the chance to network with like-minded peers who face similar, everyday challenges.

Networks are led by network chairs, who are also registered managers. Local networks meet at least three times per year and always ensure that the topics are relevant to those attending. Networks aren’t just a great source of information, they’re also an excellent source of support.

 The managers that attended were very supportive of the network and found it very useful to have the opportunity to talk to a representative from the CQC, who was very pleased to see networks like ours being set up and support these.
