With more than 100,000 vacancies in the social care sector, recruitment is paramount – but how do social care providers attract the right people to the sector?
ADASS Spring Conference – Continuing to support adult social care discourse
The annual ADASS Spring conference is a key event in the calendar. It is a chance for directors of adult social care to get together with suppliers and thought leaders to discuss change. The major change of the day was naturally Covid-19 and how the pandemic has altered the face of the market in 2020. Technology is a key component in the response, and this was acknowledged during the conference. Change is no longer knocking at the door; it is kicking it down at the hinges and we need to acknowledge this.
The cost of understanding the benefits that technology can bring
We all understand how beneficial technology is. The ability to buy nearly anything that we wish for at the touch of a button is no longer science fiction. It is science fact. We are living in an age where, in the average tube journey you can do your weekly shop, speak to your family and catch-up on work. This is no longer the future that was dreamed of, it is here. Technology is a great big pool of possibility in which the brave have invested and receive the benefits.
The NHS and Social Care - two sides of the same coin
The NHS and Social Care are two sides of the same coin. We have been saying this since day one. Since 1991 and the day that we first opened our doors, the NHS and Social Care have existed as two separate entities. We have never agreed with this stance but by that same token, we do not agree with supposed proposals from the government that the NHS should take control.
Connecting the UK through the power of ECLIPSE
The coronavirus pandemic has shown to the world that technology is of paramount importance. It has helped to maintain connections, keeping loved ones connected when they have been unable to physically see each other. It has kick-started a technology revolution that will continue to change the world for years to come.
What will the world look like this time next year?
No one knows. 2020 has brought us the conclusion to the ongoing, will they, won’t they saga that was Brexit, devastating storms and Covid-19. It’s been a challenging year to say the least and we have still to complete half of it and so looking to predict what the world will look like next year that is the real challenge.
How the internet has helped to alleviate fears
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic was unleashed upon the world, the internet was already at the point in which it should be considered as a public utility.
Scottish community hub SWAMP implements OLM’s ECLIPSE Lite to manage Covid-19 response

Charity donations at the time of Covid-19
Charities fill a necessary gap in society. In the absence of other services, they care for those who are vulnerable. Whether this is through long term research into incurable diseases, care at home, a friendly voice to listen to or simply being a voice for the voiceless. Charities are every bit as vital to the wellbeing of the world as the NHS or social care.
