Code: BH/17/487 Accessible Information (EVENT FULL)

The course is delivered by members and supporters of a local learning disability advocacy project, Speak Out.

The course aims to increase your confidence and to dispel the myth that providing accessible information is the province of specialists. You will have the opportunity to hear what helps and what doesn’t help in producing accessible information.

Using readily available resources you will try your hand at improving the accessibility of your written material. Whilst the focus of this course is producing written information that is accessible for people with learning disabilities the tips and techniques you will learn will help you to produce materials accessible to other groups.

Code: BH/17/1380 Me and My World: Learning Together Workshop

In June 2017 Brighton and Hove City Council introduced a new model for assessing and reviewing the needs of children in long-term foster care called Me and My World. The model has included placing direct work at the heart of the relationship between social worker and a system of recording that is for the child and not about them. It has also involved changes to the Children in Care review meetings to make them child-led and to ensure that they are a meaningful intervention for the child.

This interactive workshop will bring together practitioners from across Children’s Services involved in implementing Me and My World including IRO’s, social workers, supervising social workers and business support officers. It offers an opportunity to reflect on any challenges, learn from best practice and plan next steps in embedding the model in the longer-term.

Code: BH/17/423 Person Centred Risk & Restrictive Practices for Lead Staff

This course updates and replaces ‘Managing Risks & Behaviours Safely with the least Restrictive Practices’ with a focus on risk and restrictive practices for those managing staff and services, or having a lead role in care planning.

This course will assist participants to demonstrate they have complied with all CQC and legal requirements, and that alternatives to restrictive practices have been appropriately considered. It will help people promote & evidence good risk assessment and restrictive practices procedures, to ensure that people are not unnecessarily restricted in our desire to manage risks. 

A restrictive practice is any practice which could be construed as potentially restricting a person’s rights of choice, self determination, privacy, freedom/freedom of movement. Under the Care Act, restrictive practices used to manage risks may need agreement by a social worker, and at times necessitate Deprivation of Liberty applications.

Working with risk and supporting service users with complex needs to live their chosen lifestyles can feel difficult. Getting the balance right in respecting individual rights whilst also fulfilling our duty of care is important. Following robust procedures can help us in getting the balance right for service users.
