October is Black History Month and there are a number of resources that care providers can use to further and share their own knowledge, as well as the people you care for and support.
This month’s theme is ‘Time for change: Action not words’, with the aim that we all come together to make things better.
Care providers can continue this theme in their workplace across October and beyond.
What can social care providers do to celebrate Black History Month?
Our partner, Skills for Care has a range of resources, blogs and articles on equality, diversity, and inclusion in social care. It has set up a dedicated landing page that includes webinars covering Discrimination and care workers’ rights and Building alliances to support the black, Asian and ethnic minority workforce as well as a focus on some of the work Skills for Care has been doing to support a more diverse future.
NAPA, another QCS partner, is also producing resources for care providers to use. NAPA members can access them FREE of charge in The Shed, its members-only digital platform. Resources can also be purchased from the NAPA Shop.
