Description

The Goldilocks Question: Are micro-enterprises ‘just right’ for social care?

Prompted by an interest in the ‘Goldilocks’ question - what size of social care provider is ‘just right’? – this presentation discusses the role of micro-enterprises in the care sector. It draws on findings from a study which compared micro-providers of care and support with small, medium and large care providers in three areas of England. As well as generating finding about the quality and sustainability of different sizes of care service, the research explored the approaches to entrepreneurship that were evident in different types and sizes of organisation.

Catherine Needham is Professor of Public Policy and Public Management at the Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham. Her research focuses on two main areas:

(1) the public service workforce (roles, skills and values) and what it means to be a 21st Century Public Servant
(2) social care (including personalisation, co-production, personal budgets, older people, care workforce, care markets).

She has published a wide range of articles, chapters and books for academic and practitioner audiences. Her most recent book was published by Springer in 2018 and entitled Reimaging the Public Service Workforce. She tweets as @DrCNeedham

The seminar will take place in room M303 in the George Moore building at Glasgow Caledonian University.
