Intended Audience Groups: All adult social care workers and healthcare support workers in England.

Best practice
Aims and Objectives

The Code of conduct sets the standard expected of all adult social care workers and healthcare support workers in England.

It’s commonly used alongside the Care Certificate. It describes how a support worker should behave and the Care Certificate describes the minimum things they must know and be able to do.

The Code of Conduct ensures you can be sure of the standards your worker is expected to meet, check that your worker can fulfil the requirements of their role, behave correctly and do the right thing at all times and identify areas for continuing professional development.

The Code of Conduct is voluntary but is seen as a sign of good practice. It replaces the codes of practice previously developed by General Social Care Council (GSCC).
