The Social Care Commitment
The Social Care Commitment is the sector’s promise to provide people who need care and support with high quality services. Employers and employees, across the whole of the adult social care sector, sign up to the commitment pledging to improve the quality of the workforce.
It’s seen by the Department of Health as a key part of the solution to raising the standard of, and the public’s confidence in, care and support offered in our sector; with Minister for Care and Support for Norman Lamb has encouraged every “employer and employee working in social care” to sign up.
The commitment is made by signing up to seven ‘I will…’ statements and their supporting tasks. The tasks help workers and employers put the commitment into practice. It has been developed in consultation with those working in the sector so it’s easy to do and will have a real practical impact in workplaces.
