Our networks are a place for managers to come together with other managers in their local area. They offer a safe space to connect with peers, an opportunity to be open with each other and to support each other’s challenges, as well as building and sustaining a positive collective identity.
We support over 140 local networks across England. In 2021/22, over 500 network meetings took place across all our networks.
At each network, managers share knowledge and can access peer support. They hear from a range of guest speakers including local Âé¶¹Å®ÀÉ inspection teams, commissioners, Integrated Care System (ICS) representatives and local wellbeing hubs. Certificates of attendance are also offered and are a great way for managers to evidence CPD to the Âé¶¹Å®ÀÉ.
Our networks are chaired and led by registered managers and new attendees are always welcome.
The power of networks
In a recent survey highlighting the value of networks to both registered managers and deputy managers we found:
- 97% of managers would recommend joining their registered manager or deputy manager network.
- 82% felt more valued and supported in their current role as a result of attending their network.
