Skills for Care and Skills for Health - Carers Matter
Skills for Care has worked in partnership with Skills for Health to develop a range of resources that will support employers, organisations and staff to better support carers. These resources are based upon a set of Common Core Principles for working with carers, which describe the behaviours that carers would like to see when professionals are working with them, and provide a foundation for good practice and a benchmark for training. They also provide a unifying set of standards, which all those who deliver training can use. This overview is intended to share this good practice across the wider NHS in order to make healthcare professionals aware of these standards and to help with the commissioning and delivery of training and development.
