The Virtual Networks started in 2020 with a small group of childminders. We discuss current practice, what’s working well like parents dropping off children at the door and the EYFS Reforms – changes starting 1 Sept 2021. We shared our ideas and discussed many other areas of practice. The Networks give an opportunity for childminders to join together in professional conversation. Come and join this supportive group in discussion and meet new colleagues. These sessions are for registered childminders and includes those registered but not yet graded.Essential Information
This course will explore the crucial role that carers play as a key partner of Adult Social Care.
We will look at key data about carers, including in relation to some of the challenges that are commonly faced. You will also benefit from the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences, personal and professional, of caring and carers, and to learn from the lived experiences of carers including a guest speaker from South Gloucestershire. The Carers’ Support Centre will share their expertise in relation to working with and supporting carers over many years. Alongside colleagues, you will explore how to apply 3Cs, strengths-based approaches and legal literacy in your engagement with carers in line with South Gloucestershire Council ‘Carer Practitioner Guidance’. A key theme throughout the day will be recognising the positive impact that you, as a practitioner, can have in promoting the rights and wellbeing of carers and as a result, the wellbeing of adult(s) they care for.
