Invitation to help with social care workers survey

All ‘domiciliary care workers’ – the people who are paid to come into people’s homes to help with things like washing and dressing – will soon need to register with a government body, the General Social Care Council (GSCC).

To help make sure that registration works as well as possible for people who have care services in their home, the GSCC wants to find out their views about what aspects of regirtration are important and valuable to them.

You are invited to take part in the survey if you use domiciliary care services, or you are a family member or friends who represents someone who uses these services.

What will the survey involve?

  • An interviewer will arrange to meet you in your home or other suitable place.
  • You will be asked for your views of registration of those working in homecare.
  • You will be abe to haver a friend or family member with you, if you want.
  • As a ‘thank you’ for taking part, you will receive a £10 gift voucher.

All participation will be carried out in confidence. Your name will not be linked with any of the infiormation you give, and your details will not be passed to anyone else.

If you would like to take part, please contact Stephen Hodgkins, tel: 07951 050153.
