IHSCM are keen to to start bringing the solutions to the social care sector. Members are integral to this as we believe the voice for the sector has to be of the sector.
Our ‘Social Care Innovators’ group launched in January 2020 and has already achieved amazing outcomes that are starting to help shape the sector.
The Innovators group is made up of 8 sub groups, each with their own mission and desired outcomes to benefit the sector.
