    Created: 17/06/2024
    News/Events Category: Children and Families


    Who is it for?
    This session is for everyone working in, or with an interest in, residential child care in Scotland and you do not need to have attended previous sessions to take part. This session will will be highly participative.

    The background
    In 2023, reflecting on what children and the workforce told CELCIS they need, they facilitated spaces for members of the residential child care community to talk with and listen to each other, working together to think through how their community can initiate the change needed, with the support of CELCIS.

    They created a space to identify what the need is now, informed and led by the experience and perspective of the community. This diverse group was made up of representatives in frontline and independent practice and leadership, from local authorities, health and social care partnerships, education and independent residential child care providers.

    The areas of focus during this session will be:

    • What would it look like to create a space where the workforce could build on conversations so far, which identified determination, perseverance, persistence, and commitment as high value characteristics of good quality practice?
    • How do we all support the further emergence of good quality practice in the areas identified through our initial engagement sessions, including critical use of self, positive role modelling, developmental awareness, psychological safety, self-awareness, and reflection?
    • How can the residential child care community continue to organise around creating spaces which nurture and elevate innovative thinking and practice, to sustain an environment where young people experience love, hope, shared experiences, playfulness and creativity, humour, compassion, and encouragement?
