Carer Voices are delighted to announce they will continue working with Glasgow City HSCP through 2020.

Carer Voices will have the opportunity to engage with over 1000 members of staff at Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (this link will take you away from our website) in 2020.

Carer Voices began its partnership with Glasgow City HSCP in 2019. In its first year the Dementia Carer Voices project engaged with over 900 health and social care professionals. Following on from the project’s successful outreach in 2019, Carer Voices have been asked to deliver another series of talks to support the induction programme at Glasgow City HSCP.

Project Lead Tommy Whitelaw will deliver these talks to home carers, coordinators, call handlers, technicians and drivers across 5 Glasgow care homes in Knightswood, Pollok, Riverside, Sighthill and Toryglen. Each talk will be adapted to suit its particular audience with an overall aim to promote staff reflection on what matters to the people in their care. This series of talks will include extra sessions after 5pm and during the weekend in order to maximise reach across all working hours.

The Carer Voices project are delighted to be able to use this outreach to build upon its impact, promote the principles of Intelligent Kindness and the ‘What matters to you’ movement.

Tommy Whitelaw, Project Lead at Carer Voices, commented: “We’re thrilled to yet again work with Glasgow City HSCP to promote person-centred care. Given the great work that took place in 2019, we’re really excited to share the impact made more widely this year through our collection of case studies and stories.”

Findings from this series of talks will feed into case studies which will be further disseminated across the ALLIANCE channels to promote best practice across the health and social care sector.

Many thanks to Gordon Bryan, Janice Young, Jill Scoular and Julia Donaldson for the partnership opportunities.
