Skills for Care 6C’s. The 6Cs are the values which need to underpin the culture and practice of social care service who deliver care and support. Skills for Care have a new guide to explain how the 6Cs link to the important values, recruitment, qualifications, and leadership frameworks in social care.
What are the 6Cs?
Commitment They underpin Compassion in Practice, the national strategy for nurses, midwives and care staff. The 6Cs, were developed as a way of articulating the values which need to underpin the culture and practice of social care services who deliver care and support. These are immediately identiﬁable as values which underpin quality social care provision too. As integration between health and social care continues and increases it is helpful to focus on common values expressed in ways which increase consistency within all aspects of the work we do, the workforce, leadership and organisations.
