The registration process for care at home and housing support services begins next year – 2017. This will affect a large number of our member organisations.
To ensure that members feel supported and informed before and during this process, Workforce Matters is creating a ‘Ready for Registration?’ Working Group. There was an initial discussion at the Scottish Care/SSSC Regulatory Forum meeting on the 14th June about how we can best support new registrants. Part of this preparation process will also involve listening to the needs of care home organisations who have gone through the process, and now require to ensure their workforce continue their professional development.
There will be more information about getting involved in this forum on our website over the coming months.
We will be involving managers as well as front line support workers throughout this process.
For more information please contact Katharine Ross.
If you would like to become a member of the Scottish Care/SSSC Regulatory Forum that meets 3-4 times a year, please contact Katharine Ross. We are always keen to welcome new members.
