The Outstanding Society was formed by a small group of providers who had at the time all recently achieved ‘Outstanding’ ratings following the introduction of the CQC inspection standard ratings in 2014. There was a general consensus between these groups that it would be beneficial to the adult social care sector if ‘Outstanding’ services were able to share their expertise with other providers, and support the driving up of quality across the whole of England.
Due to the challenges that providers have faced and the incredible achievements that so many have celebrated we have made the decision to take the Outstanding Society (OS) to another level in 2021 and set it up as a Community Interest Company (CIC).
Zoe, Russell and Alan have a passion to share innovation and best practice and are immensely proud to work in Social Care.
Our joint vision as Directors is to give Providers Free membership through the support of our sponsors and provide a platform for all providers to access topical information on our website alongside monthly newsletters, social media and regular virtual meetings. It will also be a platform to celebrate innovation and share best practice. Our sponsors will be able to add value to providers of Social Care through their expertise in different fields, some examples of this will be tax specialists for Research and Development, Insurance advice, staff wellbeing and staff training.
We continue to have close partnerships with Care England and Skills for care and are proud to have recently partnered with the Care Workers Charity.
