Comments from people already using SCILS include:

“The SCILS website and news pages are an extremely useful resource. In particular I have been able to advise our home managers to use the training tools for dementia awareness to improve staff knowledge for the homes where dementia is prevalent, but not necessarily diagnosed/registered.”

“I find the variety of learning sessions available is very good and they cover a broad range of topics. I would highly recommend this website to anyone in the care industry.”
