Who are Resolve Care? Find out at The Care Show
Put simply, they are an organisation dedicated to the health and wellbeing of individuals with mental health issues and learning difficulties. They are also the recipients of not one but two ‘Outstanding’ ratings from the Care Quality Commission, CQC.

Safeguarding good practice for Charities: Governance and systems guide
As much as we would all like to say that safeguarding is not an issue in our society, it is. Safeguarding is a global issue that affects everyone. We need to acknowledge this and work together to minimise risk. We need to create working cultures that deem behaviour of this nature unacceptable to bring those responsible to justice, quicker.
Supporting our customers
Covid-19 is here and it is putting a huge strain on the health and social care system, in not only the United Kingdom but the world is a whole.

We are in a battle and one in which we rely on each other to keep services going to support health and social care staff on the frontline.

They provide a frontline service and deserve to be celebrated every day of the year, much like all of the other public services such as the NHS, Fire Brigade, Police and even teaching. All of these services work under enormous pressure and deserve our utmost respect. This is especially true at this point in time with the unprecedented challenge that COV-19 poses to the world.
Show some love for Social Workers this Valentine’s Day
Social work is a rewarding career, but at the current time of writing, Valentine’s Day, it is also a stressful one. Whether it is caseloads that would break the back of even the hardiest of Donkeys or it is suffering from abuse, regardless of which, something needs to be done.
Is a new ‘radical approach’ to children’s social care the answer? – Part Two
Earlier this month we looked at the ‘Radical Approach’ for social care that was unveiled at the end of last year and discussed at a webinar in January. We analysed the plans and sought to look at them with a dispassionate eye, as with something that describes itself as radical, you want proof.
