Skills for Care

In this section

We know the benefits that our registered manager networks provide to managers, so we have set up networks specifically for deputy managers, team leaders and aspiring leaders.  

The information on this page will help you to find a deputy manager network near you.

If you have any questions or would like any further information before joining, please contact the Skills for Care Locality Manager who facilitates the network. Our locality managers are also happy to arrange an introductory call with you if are new to one of the networks and have any specific questions.
