This is the draft report of a review carried out by the Social Care Workforce Research Unit into the use of the Codes of Practice for social care workers and social care employers. The review was commissioned by the four Care Councils in the UK: the General Social Care Council for England (GSCC); the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC); the Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC); and the Care Council for Wales (CCW). The overall objectives of the study were:

  • To find out how the Codes of Practice were being used by social care employers and workers across the UK;
  • To identify if the Codes were ‘fit for purpose’ and how the Codes might be further developed;
  • To establish the level of knowledge among people with experiences of using services and carers’ and their awareness and views of the Codes.
