12 May 2020
The Government has announced that it is providing a variety of guidance, including on GOV.UK and is signposting, through SCIE, resources including tailored advice for managing the COVID-19 pandemic in different social care settings and with groups with specific needs. SCIE offers advice for councils and care providers during this period of sustained transmission of COVID-19. This includes in areas such as residential care, supported living and home care guidance.
SCIE’s Chief Executive Kathryn Smith says:
We’re pleased to be supporting the sector as it deals with the many challenges that COVID-19 is throwing its way. Our resources include support over safeguarding, mental capacity, infection control, autism and learning disabilities and many other areas of social care during the pandemic. We’re running webinars, hosting blogs, doing online training and engaging with the sector to make sure that anyone involved with providing care and support has the best possible resources to hand.
