Skills for Care

Skills for Care and North West Employers held workshops with social care providers to learn more about what person centred and community-based working means and why it’s important.

From this we created a guide about person centred and community-based working relevant for:

  • adult social care managers
  • care and support workers in residential, supported living, domiciliary care and non-regulated services
  • individual employers and personal assistants.

Contains information, ideas and bite-size learning about person centred and community-based working. We’ve used stories and examples of what providers told us works well and is important for people to live good lives.

The good practice stories within this resource were gathered in 2021 and reflect the height of the pandemic. These stories are being updated in 2022. Please email if you have a community story to share with us. 

We've also produced Person-centred and community based working - a mini-guide (strength based approaches) for just a brief insight.
