Established in 2003, Social Works are experts in social care.

About us

Social Works Ltd is a specialist social care training and consultancy company. For 15 years we have been dedicated to improving the quality of care that people experience.

As well as training staff and managers, we work with carers and service users through advocacy, Best Interests Assessment and Independent Complaints Investigations.

We work with over 40 employers across London, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to work better in the support given to older people, people with learning disabilities, people with mental ill-health and those who have physical and/or sensory impairments.

 

Our courses include: the Care Cert; WDF funded RQF short courses (such as Autism Awareness, MCA, and DoLS & Dementia Awareness); Action Learning; ASYE support; The Care Act; Lone Working; Conflict Management, mandatory courses (such as basic life support and the Safer Moving and Handling of People); Management training; and Health and Social Care RQF Diplomas at L2, 3 and 5.

In training, we know that focussing on the work experience and the knowledge of our trainers is not enough. It’s far too easy to focus on the material that needs to be covered rather than whether anyone has actually learnt anything. Therefore we put just as much effort into how our trainers teach and how we ensure that people engage, learn and have fun.

Our Promise to You

  • To provide the best possible support in meeting your unique needs.
  • To be fair, straightforward, and open at all times
  • To do all we can to help you achieve the results you want

And if we make a mistake, to take the time and effort to put things right.
