New easy read version Code of Practice for Social Care Workers

A new easy Code of Practice for Social Care Workers has been developed

The new version of the Code of Practice was written by VoiceAbility working with colleagues with learning disabilities.

A representative from VoiceAbility commented: “this was an interesting document to work on but also challenging because some of the concepts such as ‘dignity’ and ‘respect’ are so difficult to convey in easy read. They also had to be rendered in pictorial form from the range available in Photosymbols 3, which is now the standard for English language government documents.”

The Care Council is seeking feedback on the need to print hard copies of the document, which is currently available to download.
