Social care workers were given some expert advice on how to grow their businesses at an event organised by Havering Council’s economic development team.
The adults social care workshop was held at Havering Town Hall, in Main Road, Romford, on Friday, and was a part of the council’s best practice masterclass series of classes.
Leaders of the industry, including Mike Armstrong the managing director of Havering care homes, delivered talks about the challenges that social care businesses often face - such as high staff turn over - and how they can be overcome.
Deborah Moonasar, skills and business engagement manager at Havering Council, said the master classes were ‘vital’ to helping care provider companies to grow.
“This was the third in a series of masterclasses that we have run helping a business sector that plays a vital role in caring for the borough’s growing population.
“With more than 40 care homes in the borough and many companies providing care at home for our local residents it’s vital that these businesses are able to grow efficiently and effectively and we hope our project contributes to helping the sector thrive.”
