Weekly Communication – Week Commencing 21/08/23

Dear Colleagues

Please see your weekly overview update on behalf of the Director of Adult and Community Wellbeing (DASS) and Director of Public Health (DPH).

DHSC National Survey of the Care Workforce

Tell the Government what’s needed to make social care a better place to work

The Government has launched the first major national survey of all care workers in all care roles in adult social care in England.

The national survey of care workers, conducted by Skills for Care, Ipsos and the University of Kent on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care, is gathering information about working conditions, organisational characteristics, and workplace culture, to understand how work-related quality of life and wellbeing is affected.

How you can help

Please share the survey with the colleagues, providers and frontline staff you work with and encourage them to respond.  The survey will take no more than 20 minutes to complete, and responses are collected anonymously.

Or use our communications resources, including posters and flyers, to help spread the word.

Thank you for your help.

Many Thanks
