The Outstanding Society is free to everyone – you do not need to have an Outstanding rating to be a member.

Sharing and Celebrating Best practice in Social Care

In 2021, the Outstanding Society (OS) was established as a Community Interest Company (CIC). Its primary purpose is to serve as a platform for sharing and celebrating best practices in social care while supporting others to enhance standards and elevate the visibility of the sector.

Our collective goal is to offer complimentary memberships, providing unrestricted access to our virtual events, newsletters, podcasts, and an array of valuable resources. This initiative strives to create an inclusive platform, ensuring that everyone can access information, celebrate innovation, and exchange invaluable best practices.

We maintain strong partnerships with Care England, Skills for Care, the Care Workers Charity, and the DHSC, fostering close collaborations to further our shared objectives and promote excellence in social care.
