Our Workforce policy programme

We support not-for-profit social care providers to contribute to national workforce agendas and sector sustainability. This includes a current focus on influencing the national Fair Work agenda and workforce planning. We cover issues related to regulation; support for the workforce with digital technology; legislation, policy and practice developments; and workforce sustainability (recruitment, retention and workforce planning).

Our Commissioning & Procurement policy programme

We aim to provide cross-sectoral support to organisations and people looking to improve how social care is commissioned and procured. In partnership with commissioners, providers and supported people, we build leadership, promote new ideas and support vital progress on ethical commissioning and procurement. Illustration: Ruby Tait

It does this by disseminating information; providing a central point for enquiries; organising events; identifying issues of common concern; and influencing policy change.
