Network Objectives

The Network, facilitated by University of the West of England lecturers has a commitment to achieving four objectives:

  • improving
  • and enhancing quality care in care homes
  • development of its workforce introducing research
  • supporting student placements (DH, ENB 2001).

Network Philosophy

A Commitment to actively encourage representatives from all Care Homes to join the Network, to promote a culture of shared learning and to cascade knowledge and information across the whole workforce

To reduce feelings of isolation in the workplace by developing meaningful communication strategies between Care Homes and other health and social care sectors

Develop opportunities to share ideas and information with other Network members where commonalities and diversities in practice can be identified and discussed within a supportive environment.
