    This event is being organised by Shared Care Scotland
    This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Shared Care Scotland is bringing together a group of people to explore, share and develop ideas for short breaks brokerage.

    This online discussion session will be the first part of a staged process with a focus on positive and forward-looking actions and with different opportunities and ways to participate throughout. For example, this is likely to include:

    • Developing a vision for short breaks brokerage
    • Identifying what makes effective brokerage
    • Recognising and building on existing good practice
    • Identifying the support required to develop good brokerage locally.

    Involvement will suit the different stages but may include different people at different times in different ways, e.g. online sessions, in-person workshops, e-contributions, show and tell session, and individual calls.

    This initial exploration session on 27 October will run for an hour (10:00 - 11:00) and will be an opportunity to discuss what developing short breaks brokerage might mean to you.

    To make the discussions productive, it would be helpful for you to consider the following ahead of the workshop:

    • Definitions: What do we mean by short breaks brokerage?
    • Components: What are the building blocks – the essentials – of a brokerage service?
    • Support: What support – resources, professional learning, networking, mentoring – do organisations need to develop an effective and high-quality brokerage service?
    • Next steps: How might you – or others – contribute to developing that support?
