Seven Resourcing Welcomes Government’s £75M Initiative to Elevate the Domestic Care Workforce

Here at Seven Resourcing, we enthusiastically support the UK Government’s recent announcement by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).  

This pivotal initiative, involving a substantial £75 million investment (split into two main areas), is set to revolutionise the domestic care sector.  

It aims to improve career prospects through advanced training, qualifications, and a clearly defined career path, significantly enhancing the quality and sustainability of care. And to us? Well, that sounds pretty fantastic. 

The Government’s Vision

Central to this promising initiative is establishing a national care career structure, which promises to provide a clear and progressive pathway for care professionals. This structure is paramount in professionalising and giving recognition to the care sector. The recognition it sorely deserves!  

The government’s (much-welcomed) allocation of over £50 million for a new Level 2 Adult Social Care Certificate will support up to 37,000 individuals. In addition, over £20 million dedicated to social work and nursing apprenticeships is set to bolster the sector’s training capacity and supervision quality significantly.

A Wholehearted Endorsement

As a key player in social care recruitment, we see this plan as a milestone in developing the care sector. This funding will ensure a continual improvement in the quality of care provided throughout the country. At the end of the day, that’s the most important thing.  

The initiative goes beyond mere training; it’s a transformation of the entire social care landscape. The plan elevates the whole profession by promoting structured career development and providing nationally recognised qualifications.  

At Seven Resourcing, we’re delighted to support and endorse this upliftment, as it will ensure that our candidates are not just placed in jobs but are also equipped to excel and progress further in their roles. The greater the quality of training, the greater the support people receive!

Expanding the Scope of Care

This initiative also acknowledges the diverse needs of care recipients. With a more skilled and knowledgeable workforce, the sector can cater to a broader range of needs, from basic care to complex medical conditions.  

Seven Resourcing is eager to match this diversity in care with a diverse pool of talented and well-trained professionals.

Final Thoughts

The DHSC’s comprehensive plan, including the £75 million investment, heralds a transformative era for social care in the UK.

Seven Resourcing is poised to play a significant role in this transformation, empowering both candidates and employers to leverage these new opportunities for a more robust and competent care workforce.
