Support for registered managers

supporting registered managers - web imageAt the heart of every outstanding service is a manager who’s working hard to ensure that they can create a person-centred culture that delivers great, high-quality care.

We're the membership organisation for registered managers in England and support managers to do just that. 

Through our day-to-day work with managers, research and consultation activities, we understand and respond to the opportunities and challenges facing registered managers.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career, or are an experienced registered manager, we support you to develop your skills, knowledge and confidence to lead a well-led service.

Supporting staff to move from one role to a higher level is important and succession planning should be a key element of any workforce plan. In addition, we know that all managers benefit from having the support of a confident deputy manager.

Take a look at our aspiring manager and new registered manager pilot programme to see how we can help. 

You can also take a look at our overview leaflet: 'Supporting your registered managers' here.

We’ve published two briefings that share key messages from research with over 860 registered managers. The briefings map the research findings to examples of the great work done by managers and their employers, as well as our support for registered managers.
