Social Care Wales publishes Social Work Workforce Plan developed by IPC

In 2021, IPC supported Social Care Wales to prepare content for a Social Work Workforce Plan by undertaking an intensive programme of online workshops, interviews and surveys. IPC consulted with a wide range of stakeholders including the social work workforce, professional bodies, trade unions and employers and drafted a workforce plan that addressed key priorities for Social Care Wales. This included the need to support the development of specialist skills, maintain capacity in the workforce and support their well-being and mental health.

As a result of IPC’s direct engagement with stakeholders, the feedback has featured strongly in each of the ambitions of the Plan as a set of "I" and "We" statements. Going forward, Social Care Wales will develop a new workforce survey that will include questions to monitor the achievement of both the "I" and "We" statements.

A copy of the Plan can be found here.

If you'd like to find out how IPC can support your organisation to develop its workforce plans or learning development activities, then please contact Fiona Richardson.
