North of England Falls Prevention in Care Homes Programme

The North of England (NOE) Falls in Care Homes Programme is a collaboration between the care home sector, social care organisations, CQC, NICE, ambulance services, the Northern AHSNs, Public Health England and NHS England (NHSE).

The vision of the programme is to:

Reduce the risk of falls and subsequent harm to care home residents through a collaborative, multi-agency, enabling approach across Northern England that:

  • shares information and expertise; and,
  • creates and spreads tools and good practice.

In response to the needs of care home staff identified at a Falls Summit in March 2018 the following resources have been developed to support staff in the effective prevention and management of falls.
