Skills for Care

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

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. 

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

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.

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.
