Care Leaders Network

Chief Executive, Care Leaders Network.

Dear Social Care leaders,

We all know that social care is highly fragmented and that this fragmentation causes knowledge silos. Despite the care workforce striving passionately to affect positive change, ultimately, these silos are holding the sector back.

But, it doesn’t have to be this way. We believe that by digitally connecting social care leaders we can break down these silos and accelerate positive change.

That is why we have established the Care Leaders Network (CLN).

At its core, CLN is an online community that connects the leaders of social care organisations.

What CLN is:

What CLN is not:

(Rather than compete, we will collaborate with these organisations and support the great work that they do!)

CLN exists to empower the sector’s pioneers, innovators and change-makers to break down silos and to accelerate positive change. We do this because, together, we’re stronger.

We envision a world where all of the great leaders of the UK social care sector are digitally united in a single online community, for the betterment of society.

The Care Leaders Network brings together three groups of people to fulfil its purpose:

We recognise that each group of members play an essential role, and are represented in the three interconnected circles of the CLN logo.

Our members are principled people and as such uphold a selection of key principles that drive our mindset and behaviour.

These principles are explained below where we outline what we stand for and stand against:

By being connected through the CLN community and sharing these guiding principles, we are part of a movement that has great aspirations for the sector’s future.


We know that it is incumbent upon all of us to do the absolute best by the people that the sector cares for and supports, and to do so we need to work together more closely.


The pandemic has brought us closer together but Covid-19 will not be the last challenge that we collectively face. Because of this, now more than ever, it is essential that we connect, share and collaborate.


As a pioneer, innovator and change-maker, are you ready to join our movement to break
down the care sector’s silos and accelerate positive change?
