For example, offering people a choice related to their care and treatment can make a huge difference to the way people feel and respond to service.

Conclusion

practice required of social care workers The code of practice for employers of social care workers - this sets out the responsibilities of employers in the regulation of social care workers. The codes play a key part in regulating the social care workforce and in helping to improve levels of public protection. Adherence to the codes will be a condition of joining the social care register. Social care workers who breach the codes could be removed from the register, while employers who break them could face sanction. The codes apply to anyone working at any level in any social care setting. Over time, one million-plus social care workers in the UK will be invited to register with their relevant social care regulatory council. This will be one of the following: The general social care council in England The care council for Wales The Northern Ireland social care council The Scottish social services council The codes also apply to all employers in private, voluntary and statutory sectors. Whether you are a social care worker or a social care employer, you need to comply with the codes.
