Relaunch

Care England, the largest representative body for independent providers of adult social care, has redesigned its website, www.careengland.org.uk, to embrace new technology and make it easier for members to access the up to date information that they need to keep abreast of care sector developments. 

Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England says:

“We know that people in the care sector are short of time and have taken this on board in our refreshed website.  The finished product is amazingly user friendly and will serve members and the care sector well as the go to hub for news and information”. 

For Care England members the site contains a wealth of information including up to date policy briefings and access to the Care England’s newsletter, while new features include a blog, Care England You Tube channel and a new filtering system.  The wider care sector will continue to have access to press releases, news of sector events and details of the many product and service suppliers supporting Care England.

The relaunch of the new, improved website is a prelude to Care England’s 2018 conference, Logging On, at Church House, Westminster on 14 November, which will focus on the growing use of data and technology in social care.  Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from an array of influential speakers driving the way forward with IT, including Care Minister, Caroline Dineage MP, and Ian Trenholm, the newly appointed Chief Executive of CQC.

Martin Green continues:

“Care England’s support for, and influence in the sector continues to grow and our new website reflects this. Regular updates will ensure that those running and working in care homes have a reliable gateway to the crucial information that they need on a daily basis.”

Notes to editors:

  1. Care England is the largest representative body for independent providers of adult social care
  2. Care England works to ensure that care services are commissioned fairly, efficiently and on a properly funded basis, to meet the true costs of providing quality care.  A Care England survey in July 2017 noted that 45% of providers are projecting to take on less Local Authority placements over the next 3 years due to low rates being paid by councils
