Here at Way Ahead Support Services we are all for asking for directions or being signposted to the right place which is why we hope our Information Hub helps anyone looking for a little direction.
We want you to be able to keep up to date with what's going on in the social care sector both locally and nationally and how this affects what we do as provider in the sector.
Covid-19 continues to dominate the news but there are many other things happening in social care both locally and nationally which we wanted to bring together in one place for people to look at.
Please get in touch if you feel that there is something that people may find useful for us to include on our Information Hub page.
MANDATORY VACCINATION FOR FRONTLINE HEALTH AND CARE STAFF
The Government consultation has now ended and we are waiting now for the full information about what the result of this consultation will mean for staff working in this sector.
COVID BOOSTERS AND FLU VACCINATION
We are aware that people are being contacted to book their covid boosters and flu vaccinations. Please have a look at the information provided by the Government in relation to this.
SKILLS FOR CARE
Skills For Cares Workforce Intelligence website has a wealth of information about our sector.
'We are Skills for Care’s Workforce Intelligence Team, the experts in adult social care workforce insight.
Skills for Care, as the leading source of adult social care workforce intelligence, helps to create a better-led, skilled and valued adult social care workforce. We provide practical tools and support to help adult social care organisations in England recruit, retain, develop and lead their workforce. We work with employers and related services to ensure dignity and respect are at the heart of service delivery.
We’re commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care to collect data on adult social care providers and their workforce via the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (previously named National Minimum Data Set for Social Care). For over 10 years we’ve turned this data into intelligence and insight that's relied upon by the Government and across our sector.'

LOWERING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Making a Difference
Here at Way Ahead we are looking at ways to reduce our waste to ensure that we are contributing to the efforts to make a greener and cleaner future for everyone. Due to Covid we have seen a massive increase in our usage of masks which is why we decided early on to ensure that our masks are recycled rather than becoming land fill.
During 2022 we will be aiming to reduce our paper usage across all of our services by digitalizing our paperwork.
We are currently looking at other ways to become greener and will be participating in local and national projects to help us to be able to achieve our plans.
