Social Care Commitment
Oakleigh Lodge has signed up to participate in the Social Care Commitment. The Social Care Commitment is the sector’s promise to provide people who need care and support with high quality services. Employers and employees, across the whole of the adult social care sector, sign up to the commitment pledging to improve the quality of the workforce. The commitment is made by signing up to seven ‘I will…’ statements and their supporting tasks. The tasks help workers and employers put the commitment into practice. Employers promise to give their workers the development they need and staff promise to put social care values into practice in their daily work. The Social Care Commitment's primary purpose is to ensure public confidence that people who need care and support services will always be supported by skilled people who treat them with dignity and respect.
