CORU is Ireland’s multi-profession health regulator whose role is to protect the public by promoting high standards of professional conduct, education, training and competence through statutory registration of health and social care professionals.
On 30 November 2023, the register opens for social care workers in Ireland in preparation for the title “Social Care Worker” becoming protected from 1 December 2025. This will mean that only those who are on the Social Care Workers Registration Board’s register will be permitted to use the title from this date forward.
Regulation aims to protect the public by promoting high standards of professional conduct, education, training and competence of the designated profession.
CORU has created a new Social Care Worker website to support and guide professionals, employers, and graduates through the registration process and to share the latest news and events. Here you will find comprehensive information about the regulation and registration process. For more information visit https://www.coru.ie/social-care-workers/
