93% of our services inspected in Q3 were rated ‘Good’ by CQC, a 3% increase on Q2.

90 training events were run across three regions

Ensuring our staff are well-trained and competent in supporting people will always be a high priority for us. Our unique training programme, encompassing both face-face learning and e-learning, offers the best in contemporary skills development techniques.

We hold regular training events in our regional offices and services across the UK. During Q3, 90 training events, which included Values, Equality and Diversity, Autism Awareness, Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards, Safeguarding and Epilepsy Awareness, were held across three regions.

Staff turnover at Walsingham Support is 4% below the national average

The Skills for Care National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) is an online database which holds data on the adult social care workforce. It is the leading source of workforce intelligence and holds information on around 25,000 establishments and 700,000 workers across England.

We use the NMDS-SC to benchmark statistics including staff turnover against the sector average. Walsingham Support’s staff turnover was 21.7% in Q3, 4% below the NMDS-SC average of 25.7%.
