Our Workforce Groups each run quarterly throughout the year and, as ever, we are really keen to have the involvement of our frontline colleagues and more provider participation. Details of the next dates are listed below:
Joint Scottish Care/SSSC Regulatory Forum
The next meeting will take place on Tuesday 10th September 2019 between 10.00am and 12.30pm. The venue of this meeting has still to be confirmed but will be held at a venue in Edinburgh.
The Regulatory Forum explores how regulation of our services impacts upon them and our workforce. SSSC, who co-chair, advise and guide on new initiatives with providers being able to highlight challenges and solutions on topics such as registration, SVQ, qualifications and training among many others. More input from frontline colleagues and providers can only increase our effectiveness, so please come along.

The next meeting will take place on 12th September between 10:30am and 12:30pm. This will be held at the Carewatch office in Greenock, 38 Union Street, PA16 8DJ.
This group allows anyone with an interest in the care of people living with dementia to explore the Promoting Excellence Framework, training opportunities, best practice and hear updates from several different types of services on how they are encouraging and implementing the Framework within their own organisations. It is always great to have people involved in the direct delivery of dementia care and hear the challenges and successes experienced daily in their work.
