Join us to discuss opportunities to improve the adult social care sector.
About this event
We are bringing together people working in the Adult Social Care sector from Islington and beyond. The roundtable will help us understand how we can strengthen the sector.
Adult social carers, care providers and the people for whom they care, have strengths which we want to identify and leverage. We know that there are problems with how the Adult Social Care sector works. We also know that there are groups out there who have good solutions to some of these issues.
What format will the roundtable take?
Two facilitators will take up to 15 participants through a learning and discovery process. .The facilitators will guide the participants through a few exercises to get them thinking about challenges and opportunities in the sector. There will also be opportunities for the participants to get to know each other better and share examples of good-practice.
Who will be at the roundtable?
- The roundtable should be attended by:
- Staff from Islington Council with in-depth knowledge of the Social Care commissioning process
- Representatives from independent care providers operating in Islington who would like to engage openly and collaboratively in finding solutions to the problems in the sector
- Economists and other experts who have a specific interest in changing the way that the Adult Social Care sector operates
What outcomes do we expect from the Roundtable?
- A better shared understanding of the complex of strengths and challenges that exist in the sector
- A better understanding of what systems and solutions exist already and how we might apply these in Islington
- A write-up of what we learnt and what happened at the session
- To identify a group of people to participate in a working group/study circle in Adult Social Care where pragmatic interventions are co-created.
- Participants to have a better understanding of how the principles of cooperativism can be applied to the Adult Social Care sector
