Editorial Comment: Promoting the best

It’s a challenging time for all those involved in social care.

The government is rolling out the personalisation agenda against a backdrop of increasing demand and tighter funding.

All around the country, teams are trying to innovate, create efficiencies and deliver more personal services. But there’s a huge risk of teams re-inventing the wheel as they modernise their services.

That’s why Community Care this week launches the Excellence Network 2008. The Excellence Network is a new honours programme with simple but significant objectives – to recognise excellence and share it.

We want teams from all the different client groups to nominate themselves through an easy-to-complete application form. Community Care will collate and disseminate this best practice through its pages, website and live events. Take 10 minutes to go online and get involved and it could be you receiving national recognition next May and helping to drive social care practice forward.
