  • 7. Securing better outcomes for children and young people: the role of young people in inspection and improvement
    Care Inspectorate, United Kingdom (Scotland)
    The Care Inspectorate is the national agency in Scotland that inspects and supports improvement for the most vulnerable children and young people in society. The workshop will examine the role of young people with experience of being in care as team members in the inspection process and the added value they bring to identifying both excellent and weak practice. It builds on a rights based approach to care in Scotland. This innovate approach to scrutiny brings together inspectors, young people with experience of care and reflective practitioners from social work, education, health and the police to support and drive improvement. The best practice examples are evidence based and will be of interest to any professionals wishing to develop their practice. We will share our quality framework and our approach to self-evaluation which has supported innovation and improvement.

  • 8. The “Community-Around-Baby” toolkit; Early years education and support for first-time parents
    General Council of Pas-de-Calais, France
    The Pas-de-Calais Maternal and Child Protection services have developed a research-based protocol of support for first-time parents (from pregnancy to the child's second birthday) for which an educational tool kit, based on problem solving, has been created. The result of an evaluation has shown satisfactory rates of voluntary adhesion for families, which establish trust-based relationships between parents and professionals, thus making early intervention easier. The toolkit is currently in use for groups of parents with an open approach.The workshop participants will get to know the “Community-Around-Baby” toolkit and the different stages of the problem-solving process on the basis of situations parents may be confronted with in their daily life.

  • 9. Social and healthcare integration: Lazio Regional Authority strategy to support people with Alzheimer’s
    Lazio Region, Italy
    The symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease may be destabilising not just for the person themselves, but for the entire family and, potentially, the whole community. For these reasons it is necessary to combine healthcare-type measures with other social care strategies to be planned at a regional and local level. The goals are: to improve patients’ quality of life and maintain their independence, to maintain the psycho-social balance within the family, thus facilitating access to employment, and for services to create new, highly skilled practitioners specialising in social care for people with Alzheimer’s. Issues to be addressed include planning for optimal health and social resource allocation, setting standards, and using technology to obtain real-time data. The workshop will facilitate debate about improving outcomes through service integration.

    Municipality of Horsens, Denmark

Moreover, people with disabilities get personalised support to work in a first labour market job (not in sheltered employment) alongside people without disabilities.
