Adult Social Care Sector Compact Consultation

Adult social care employers and workers are being asked to respond to an online consultation on the future shape of the sector compact.

The Government’s Caring for our future White Paper set out a commitment to ‘work with care providers, service users and carers to develop a sector-specific compact, including a skills pledge to promote culture change and skills development.’

The sector compact will incorporate an employer agreement and an employee agreement giving clarity to employers and employees about what is expected of them. Sign-up to the compact will be voluntary. 

The compact will a be series of clear workforce commitments and the draft employee statements are  based on the Code of Conduct for healthcare workers and adult social workers launched in March. www.skillsforcare.org.uk/sectorcompact
