The National Care Forum, the leading membership organisation for not-for-profit organisations in the care and support sector, announces the release of its Impact Report 2021-22.
- Over 1,000 people attended over 30 Members’ Forums with
presentations from external stakeholders such as DHSC, CQC
and NHS TD as well as NCF Partners including Anthony Collins,
Carterwood and Cohesion.
- Our weekly COVID-19 Members’ Calls have morphed into
weekly real time briefing calls, enabling us to update members
on emerging wider social care policy and guidance, alongside
ongoing COVID-19 issues. They also keep us closely connected
to the latest issues facing members.
- Media coverage across the time period resulted in 2,800 pieces of coverage across television, radio and press, giving nearly 840 million people the opportunity to listen to
what we had to say
- We launched the Care and Housing Employers Together for Refugees Resource Hub in association with the Care Provider Alliance offering a wide range of useful information and links relating to safe and fair recruitment.
- We took over the Care Innovation Hub – a hackathon-style challenge. Creative thinkers, entrepreneurs
and leading experts from the sector, including people with lived experience, came together for two days of idea generation and prototype trialling.
Professor Vic Rayner OBE, CEO, National Care Forum said
“Thank you to all our members and partners who have worked with us over the last year. As this report clearly shows, there has been a huge variety of work going on to support, advocate, promote and transform social care in communities up and down the country and not for profit care has been at the heart of it.”
“I am extremely proud of the work that the team at NCF delivers, and I know they did it from a place of passion and commitment, spurred on by the inspirational work of members and the absolute drive to ensure that everyone who requires care receives it in the way that they want, and when they need it. Social care matters to us all.”
