Topic outline

  • Principles of care

    These principles are the keystones upon which your care and support practice rests. You may have chosen to work in a care and support role because you value people and believe in giving everyone a fair chance. The principles help you to carry out these values as part of your everyday work. This learning resource will help you to look at Codes of Practice and service standards in more detail as well as exploring personalisation, equality and diversity and protecting people.
