Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct sets the standard of conduct expected of all adult social care workers and healthcare support workers in England and is commonly used alongside the Care Certificate.

It helps workers provide high quality, safe and compassionate care and support. It outlines the behaviours and attitudes that people who use care and support should rightly expect.


The Code of Conduct is voluntary but is seen as a sign of good practice. It replaces the codes of practice previously developed by General Social Care Council (GSCC).
