We’re presenting at Scotland Policy Seminar

Our charity’s Chief Operating Officer, Karen Sheridan, will be joining Scotland Policy Conferences’ upcoming virtual keynote seminar on Thursday 26th August, to discuss adult social care in Scotland and to share some of our recent and upcoming initiatives at Community Integrated Care.

Karen Sheridan is presenting at the Next Steps for adult social care conference

The seminar – ‘Next steps for adult social care in Scotland – service improvement, policy, funding, the workforce, stakeholder collaboration, and community-based support’ – will explore and examine next steps for social care policy. The conference will look at the measures that can be taken to deliver improvement in service provision, foster greater cohesion within the social care system, and support the care sector workforce.

Karen will be joining a panel discussion on ‘Supporting the adult social care workforce and meeting fair work principles – options for improving working conditions, wage levels, and parity of esteem with healthcare workers’ which is scheduled to take place at 10.50am.

Within the session, Karen will discuss a number of topics, including:

  • How we acknowledge and deliver to Scotland’s fair work principles here at Community Integrated Care.
  • Our Unfair To Care campaign and the impact this has had in the sector.
  • How we are developing a 4-day week for our colleagues.
  • Our charity’s approach to embracing technology.

Karen Sheridan, Chief Operating Officer and Community Integrated Care, said:

“I’m delighted to be joining the Scotland Policy Conference seminar to take part in such important discussions about the future of social care and the measures that need to be taken to improve conditions for our workforce.

With attendees set to include policymakers and key government stakeholders, this conference provides a unique and exciting opportunity for us to share the incredible work that our teams are carrying out to provide the best care possible to the people that we support. It also gives a platform for our charity to continue campaigning and sharing the groundbreaking findings of our Unfair To Care report with a wider audience.”
