UKHCA and DWP sign up to closer working


Yesterday our Chief Executive, Bridget Warr signed a partnership agreement with Mark Hoban, Minister of State for Employment, which sets out ways in which we will work together. At the heart of the agreement is a desire to encourage more of the right people to consider a career in homecare by making sure Job Centre plus staff are well informed about what working in homecare is all about and making links with local UKHCA members.

We’ll also be able to tell DWP about the recruitment needs of our sector and what local schemes and practices work best so they can be rolled out to other areas.

This is the start of what we hope will be a long and fruitful relationship.
