Other ways we support employers
Employer support team
As the employer support team we aim to:
- work with employers to hear from you about what's happening in the sector. We share this intelligence with the rest of our organisation to help shape our work
- share what's available to employers to support you and the workforce
- help employers to understand your regulatory responsibilities and make this as straightforward and efficient as possible.
This work is currently in a pilot phase until 2025 with a focus on adult care home employers and domiciliary care employers due to the increase in registered staff in these areas since 2020. However, any resources produced will be on our website and available to all employers.
