Skills for Care’s latest campaign focuses on ‘Improving digital confidence’
Throughout November and December Skills for Care is running a campaign to support people working in social care to feel confident with digital technology.
The campaign titled ‘Improving digital confidence’, aims to take the fear out of the word ‘digital’ and help everyone to gain a better understanding of what being more digital in social care can look like.
Currently around 10% of adult social care organisations in England aren’t digitised.
The Government has stated its target for there to be established digital, data and technology talent pipelines, and improved digital literacy among leaders and the workforce, plus all health and social care settings to have the right infrastructure and connectivity to work digitally by 2025.
This campaign will help to make digital less daunting to people in all roles across social care, and highlight the benefits which digital technology can have for people working in social care and people drawing on care and support.
Running across the organisation’s website, social media, and other communication channels, the campaign will cover what digital technology in social care can look like; the benefits of digital technology, and the support available to help people increase their #DigitalConfidence.
It will include blogs and real life insights from digital technology experts and social care organisations who have effectively introduced digital ways of working.
You can follow the campaign and join in on discussions on social media using #DigitalConfidence.
