CWDC is one of the five bodies that make up the Sector Skills Council, Skills for Care & Development (SfC&D).
Skills for Care and Development is the Sector Skills Council for social care, children and young people's workforces in the UK. It is an alliance of six organisations:
- Care Council for Wales
- Children's Workforce Development Council
- General Social Care Council
- Northern Ireland Social Care Council
- Scottish Social Services Council, and
- Skills for Care
Skills for Care and Development (SfC&D) is licensed by government to represent the interests of some 60,000 employers and 1.6 million workers across the UK. These staff are employed by a range of organisations - both public authorities and independent organisations, often commissioned by the public sector to deliver social care services but sometimes acting directly for people who receive the services.
In all cases, the drive is for appropriately skilled and qualified workers to meet the UK's current and future social care needs. SfC&D works closely with service users and carers, education and training providers, national stakeholders and the health sector.
