A few words from the Association of Social Care Professionals Chief Executive:

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Chief Executive of The Association of Social Care Professionals. It is a

very exciting time to join our Association with the constant and ever changing challenges that running a Residential Care Home, Domiciliary

Care Business or Day Care Centre presents. I too forward to working with you and on your behalf to meet both the opportunities and

challenges ahead.

I am very excited about the year ahead and hope you like our new website which is aimed at providing you with both informative and useful

features. We will continue to develop the benefits available to our Membership and seek to ensure that as Members you can contribute to

the development of  your organisation to meet the increasing demands of Social Care Provision in the UK.

Over the next few months I will be working closely with my colleagues to update and enhance our development plans for the future work of

the ASCP and to ensure we maintain, if not improve, the benefits to our Members. We are also working on a variety of Training and

Professional Education resources and in particular the launch of our Diploma in Social Care Management. We would also like to establish

and develop a range of networking seminars with guest speakers from both inside and external to the Social Care field.

I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with you and look forward to sharing future updates and developments and also meeting

many of you over the coming years.

Best Wishes

John Grantham MSC chartered FCIPD
