Local networks for managers

Thousands of managers attend the 150 local networks that we support across England. At each network, managers share knowledge, hear from guest speakers and access peer support. 

Find your local network

Our networks cover every local authority area in England and always welcome new attendees.

Contact your Skills for Care locality manager to find out what's happening in your area and how to join your local network.

Find your local network using our network directory (due to the current situation, please contact your locality manager in the first instance). Please remember to press F5 to refresh your web browser once you have opened the network directory to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information.

Take a look at a message that our CEO, Oonagh Smyth recently recorded for registered managers. She talks about the importance of the registered manager networks and thanks registered managers not only for the work that they do, but for the support that they provide each other. View the video now.

Hear from our networks 

A safe place to network with other managers who share compassion and determination to get through the most challenging of times, an opportunity to share thoughts and feelings whilst supporting each other with constantly changing guidance.

I have found the WhatsApp group extremely helpful and supportive. At a really difficult time it helps to have the knowledge, advice and support from others who understand our unique situation.
