An introduction to Skills for Growth - SME Support


Skills for Growth – SME Support is committed to building back better for the future of our care sector. While we tend to associate the pandemic with restrictions and limitations, if we implement hygienic, considerate and community focused initiatives, we can liberate the sector by helping reduce infection and transmission of COVID-19. We can learn to manage and live in a world alongside the virus and improve the quality of life for those working in care and living in care as we do it.

The changes we make now are not just for COVID, but for the general improvement of safety and quality of life in care. Preparedness is the best plan of action to avoid resorting to reactive response to any future outbreaks or other concerns, and it’s time to make improvements for the future wellbeing of the entire sector.
