The Social Care Commitment is the adult social care sector’s promise to provide people who need care and support with high quality services.

It is a Department of Health initiative, with Skills for Care’s assistance, and has a smart website where you can sign up, read guidance and case studies, and find out how different organisations have used the Commitment.

Making the Commitment involves agreeing to the seven statements and selecting tasks to help put those statements into practice. For more information, see their website here.

The Social Care Commitment website features a case study video that we here at HomeCareDirect took place in at the end of last year.

This was a great opportunity to talk about how we have used the Social Care Commitment in our work and being a person centred organisation we already use many of the commitments codes on a daily basis – so it’s important to share our way of working to encourage a more personalised approach for both individuals and their personal assistants.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the Social Care Commitment or our case study video so please get in touch with us.
