Real Life Options Appoints Support and Enablement PartnersThursday 3 September, 2020
As we continue to make real progress towards embedding our model of support, My Real Life Options, organisation-wide, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Support and Enablement Partners Lisa Livingstone (England) and Susan Griffiths (Scotland). Both have a wealth of experience as registered Service Managers and are passionate about enabling individuals to have greater control over their lives and developing teams to provide truly person-centred support.
A bespoke Support and Enablement Toolkit has been developed in conjunction with the people we support, partnering organisations and subject matter experts which will be used by our staff teams to embed best practice, monitor progress and capture measurable outcomes. Tailored Support and Enablement modules are being added to our organisation’s learning portal, The Skills Academy, with staff learning and development due to begin shortly.
Commencing September, Lisa and Susan will work closely with service teams to widen the programme roll out, educate staff teams and coach Support and Enablement Practice Leads across our services.
“When we announced our ambition at last year’s conference, our managers were fully supportive of refining our approach to person-centred support. It has taken time to develop the blueprint for the model however I am confident that it has been time well spent. We are already seeing strong engagement from our staff teams and positive outcomes for the people supported by our organisation. Lisa and Susan are very welcome additions to a highly dedicated and focused Support and Enablement Management Team.” David Sargent, CEO.
