Our commitments

2.The care sector is a place people want and choose to work in. We will promote the sector through incentives and support providers to have preferred employment packages.

3.Adults who need support have plenty of choices to suit their needs, and this is available in every part of our county.

4.Carers, un-paid carers and personal assistants have easy access to training and upskilling, and there is a bank of additional Personal Assistants (PAs) for people to access.

5.The workforce will be competent, capable and confident to use new digital technology.
