The 5 North London Councils (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington) have collaborated on a joint programme of work in recent years in areas where working together can provide better results for residents. One of our main areas of focus has been around supporting the adult social care workforce. Previous work has included:
- Recruitment – development of the www.proudtocarenorthlondon.org.uk website with information on careers in care and a free job site for providers; matching residents looking to work in care with social care providers that are recruiting; values based recruitment training; information on good practice for providers
- Progression and leadership: developing care workers; nurse associate and managerial apprenticeships with bolt on clinical skills that providers can access. Peer group learning and development for nurses. As well as a Managers whatsapp group.
- Skills: remote monitoring in care homes programme and clinical skills training.
- Wellbeing: development of the NCL wellbeing pack; establishment of virtual peer groups.
