Opportunity for Advanced Social Care Leaders in North Central London

Calling social care leaders in North Central London!

Would you like to take part in a unique development programme and play a role in shaping and influencing the issues affecting health and social care in your area?


In 2023, My Home Life England worked with care providers and stakeholders from the wider health and social care system in London to consider how we can support care leaders to play a more active strategic role in helping address the issues facing the health and social care system.

Now in 2024, we’ve received funding to pilot a bespoke leadership programme!

  • The programme is for up to 16 advanced social care leaders (working in residential and domiciliary care), who are located in North Central London.
  • The programme involves providing bespoke training and support to leaders and opportunities to work alongside individuals in the system with a strategic focus.
  • It will commence in early Spring 2024.

This is a unique opportunity for individuals wishing to contribute their skills and expertise to make a bigger difference across the North Central London health and care system
