Skills for Care

Recommendations, practical examples, advice and resources to support your CQC assessments.

This toolkit is aimed at adult social care providers. All content has been shaped around the CQC’s Single Assessment Framework and what you may need to evidence to achieve a Good or Outstanding rating.

With recommendations and examples drawn directly from providers meeting CQC expectations, this toolkit can help you to reflect on your own service and different ways of delivering care. It allows you to take a deeper look at each of the Key Questions and Quality Statements.

You can also filter content by a number of different service types and easily share what you find with your team. Co-produced with The Outstanding Society, with the support of SCIE and NICE, this is a regularly updated source of good and best practice.
