New NFCC mobility scooter guidance now been published
New guidance from the National Fire Chiefs Council has now been published ‘mobility scooter guidance for residential buildings’.
NFCC is pleased to release this for residential buildings, which outlines considerations for responsible persons of residential buildings to help establish the safe use, storage and charging of mobility scooters. It also supplements the information in NFCC’s Specialised Housing guide.
This has been an excellent example of sector-led guidance, to ensure all those affected are involved in the production of this guide.

Workforce Strategy 2018-21
Our workforce is our greatest asset; having the appropriate numbers of staff who are highly skilled, confident and compassionate and care about the people they support is what ensures the services we deliver are of high quality and person centred.
In Hertfordshire, we are proud of our social care workforce and recognise the importance of valuing our care workforce, supporting them with excellent training and development, different career options and progression routes, and so enabling them to thrive in their roles and be proud of the work they do.
