Community Care

We are extending our work into Community Care. Below you will find information and resources to support Care Home staff.

The Care Certificate

Developed following the review of health and social care support workers by Camilla Cavendish (2013), the Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the unregistered workforce in mind, the Care Certificate was developed to provide structured and consistent learning to ensure that care workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe, quality care and support.

You can access Health’s e-learning here.

The Care Certificate e-learning programme supports workers who are studying elements of the Care Certificate in both health and social care. It has been designed to support the theoretical component of their learning and provide a focus for discussion with the student’s mentor and assessor.
