Comments Off on Innovative learning – New personalisation case studies
Over the past two years, Skills for Care’s Innovation Fund has supported a number of projects aimed at people who employ their own care and support staff and personal assistants (PAs). The learning from these projects is now available from a series of new case studies.
- Suffolk Brokerage overcame the challenges of engaging with individuals who did not see themselves as employers
- Liverpool Personal Service Society led consultations to identify what people wanted from their PAs, with personal qualities and values emerging as particularly important
- The Dudley Centre for Inclusive Living developed an empowering approach for individuals, resulting in training designed by disabled people for disabled people
- CareMatch developed a contact database with the ultimate aim of developing a community based service to ensure social inclusion and improve support for both people with disabilities and those supporting them
- Ruils created five short films looking at areas of training for PAs. The films can be freely accessed online via a link in the case study.
