Event flyer

Redesigning Sleepovers:

Sleepovers are a form of overnight support where the worker is sleeping/resting at their place of work ( the supported person’s home) but must be available to respond to the person’s needs during their shift.

 Workshop aim:

This is an opportunity for participants to contribute to the development and redesign of the current approach to sleepovers, whilst maintaining safe, quality overnight support for the people who need it and making best use of the funding available.

Who should attend?

The event is open to Health & Social Care Partnership staff; social care providers and relevant intermediaries. It will be of most relevance to staff with experience of commissioning and delivering sleepovers and other forms of overnight support.

Please disseminate this as widely as possible within your organisation with these groups of staff and others who you feel it is of relevance to.

The learning from the event will be disseminated and shared with attendees, other partners and across H&SCPs.

To find out more and reserve your place:

Places are limited so please respond no later than the 20th of January to reserve your place.
