We are delighted to announce that RWPN's new professional register has now been endorsed by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, Visionary (the representative body for local Vision Impaired Charities and organisations) and Vision UK (the independent partnership organisation working across the eye health and sightloss sector).
This recognition is significant: ADASS (Association of Directors of Adult Social Services) promotes best practice across local authorities in England so this is a clear directive to managers and commissioners to ensure their staff are on the register, and by doing so, are accountable to service users. The register went live in January 2019. It is public and can be viewed on this website. ADASS' endorsement means that it expects employers of Vision Rehabilitation Workers will understand the benefitss of employing this specialist service and understand its inherent risks. ADASS endorses this register as best practice in ensuring its members workforce is fit for purpose in safeguarding the public.
