Care managers polled on working lives and support needs

The National Skills Academy for Social Care wants to hear from registered managers about the issues they face and their support needs.

Registered managers, commonly the lead professionals in care homes and in home care settings, don’t always get the recognition, respect and support they deserve for the work that they do and the pressures they have to work with, writes Debbie Sorkin, head of membership and engagement at the National Skills Academy for Social Care.

To that end, a group of social care membership organisations, including the skills academy, have come together and commissioned a wide-ranging national survey of registered managers, to obtain evidence from people on the ground about the issues facing them and the kinds of support they would want to see.

So, if you’re a registered manager and you have 10 minutes to spare, we’d love you to complete the survey.  The more people we hear back from, the better we’ll all be able to help you in future.

The survey is totally anonymous and three lucky participants chosen at random will each receive an iPad 3 as a thank-you. For more information, read the terms and conditions of the survey, and if you have any problems opening or completing the survey, email me or call me on 020 7268 3287.
The deadline is 24th April 2012: we look forward to hearing from you.
