Care Act 2014 Implementers Event : Trust-wide Social Work Forum 21 July 2016

The programme of work was commissioned by the Association of Directors Adult Social Services (ADASS), Manchester Metropolitan University in partnership with Bury Metropolitan Local Authority. The programme provided an opportunity to move beyond initial training and development on the Care Act and to consider and drive forward changes to professional practice, driving excellence in practice and promoting leadership at an advanced practitioner level. Concurrent to this programme of study, Care Act Implementers will establish and develop an Expert Reference Group across the North West to promote excellence in practice at a regional and national level and to act as a focal point for ADASS.

TEASC Risk Awareness Tool Workshop – 9 June 2016
On June 9th NW ADASS successfully convened a half-day learning event to look back on the North West Region’s completion of the TEASC Risk Awareness Tool. Over 40 colleagues from 20 different NW LAs engaged in rich discussion about future usage of the risk tool which included a national update from LGA colleagues.
The event enabled colleagues to reflect on last year’s TEASC Risk Tool completion process and hear from a number of LAs on their approach – what worked well and what they would do differently next time. The event was a great success and will help inform completion of the tool here in the North West. It also helped the region understand how collectively we embed risk awareness in our Sector-Led Improvement programme. To access the presentations and key discussion points.
