Skills for Care is offering funding and support to facilitate conversations between commissioners and social care providers across London and the South East.
The funding has been awarded by the Department of Health and Social Care to support local Transforming Care partnerships with workforce development. It supports the request made by the NHS England Learning Disability Programme Board about stimulating the provider market to bring long-stay patients home.
The support offered by Skills for Care includes the organisation and facilitation of meetings and events, engagement with local providers and workforce planning. Depending on levels of interest, the funding may be available to support small or larger projects.
