A new digital platform has launched to unite the global social care community.
The Meaningful Connections Community platform offers care professionals and their employers an opportunity to share, collaborate and debate issues impacting person-centred care cultures.
Developed by consultancy group Meaningful Care Matters, the tool is designed to enable networking through the sharing of ideas, information and experiences, as care providers around the world continue to work through the COVID-19 pandemic.
The aim is to create and grow a community that can support each other through the ongoing changes and challenges they face now, and in a post-pandemic world.
In addition, the platform will also offer regular accredited online courses and resource tools, such as blogs, podcasts, and short films, in a bid to help care providers develop together.
Peter Bewert (pictured), managing director of Meaningful Care Matters, said: “Some care providers and people are on the road to recovery, while others are still under strict restrictions in their country, and some may already be experiencing their new normal. But what we all have in common is the impact of COVID-19. This has presented a unique opportunity for us to support and learn as we grow together.
“Our desire is this is a single destination which will support multiple outcomes from annual CPD requirements to useful tools and connections with others of the same mind and heart. Never has it been more important to connect with each other and this platform will allow us to connect in a meaningful and engaging way.”
