Getting in on the Act: How to Set Up and Run Co-operative Care and Support...
Thu 10 November 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
This free practical workshop is designed for people planning to set-up co-operative care and well-being support services.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act creates exciting opportunities for how care and well-being support services are delivered in Wales. It calls for more co-operatives, social enterprises, and user-led groups to be involved in providing personal care and well-being support services. This is because these organisations seek to place people at the heart of decisions about the type of support they access.
This innovative workshop is designed for people who are planning to set-up new care and well-being support services encouraged by the Act. It provides a comprehensive overview of how to develop a new service from an initial idea.
Through a combination of presentations, films and group activities, the workshop will guide you through the steps involved in finalising your business strategy, choosing your legal model and governance, and taking advantage of new opportunities to grow.
You will have the chance to apply your learning through an interactive case-study, where the decisions you make will determine the strategy and legal structure, of a potential service.
The aims of the workshop are:
- To show how the principles of co-operation link to the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act.
- To provide a practical step-by-step guide to forming a business strategy.
- To introduce a range of legal models and show the differences between them.
- To provide an overview of governance responsibilities and shared decision-making.
- To give participants the chance to test and apply their learning.
- To provide practical examples of opportunities to grow and develop services.
Lunch will be provided. Please let us know of any dietary / access / communication requirements during the booking process.
