Skills for Care, in partnership with Skills Active, have commissioned research in order to develop an understanding of the benefits and practicalities of developing a shared workforce development programme. The research aims to explore the opportunities that may be available for greater dialogue and collaboration between social care employers and employers within the sport and fitness sectors. The research also aims to identify existing examples of sport and fitness providers/professionals engaging with social care providers and commissioners in order to deliver activities for adults in receipt of social care.
The research team is keen to speak to REP members that are either exploring opportunities to engage with the social care sector or who are already delivering services to adults in receipt of social care. Interested members should contact the research team manager Andy Parkinson on 07713 357386 or firstname.lastname@example.org
