Shaping a Care Association for Norfolk Social Care Providers - latest

Two further communications have been issued by the Shaping a Care Association for Norfolk Social Care Providers Executive Steering Group

 

Communication 1 - Recruitment Opportunity:  Market Connectors – a few vacancies remaining

We recently told you we were looking to form a new Care Association for social care providers in Norfolk. 

The next stage in this process is to consult widely with the adult social care sector to understand what services they would want from a Care Association.  This consultation activity has been co-designed by the Norfolk Care Association Executive Steering Group and University of East Anglia and the University of Suffolk.

We have currently recruiting six Market Connectors.  We have a number of applicants but there are still a few vacancies remaining.  These Market Connectors will help us engage and consult with the adult social care provider market on the function, priorities and form of a new Care Association.

We are in Phase 2 of recruitment and so we will review each application as we receive it.  Suitable applicants will be invited to interview on 20th September (AM).  There will be a maximum of six interview slots.  This means that the ‘closing date’ for application will be after all six slots have been allocated or 19th September whichever is the earlier.

We welcome expression of interest from any suitable candidates. Those working for organisations already providing services to the social care sector may find this opportunity of particular interest.

Please refer to this form for further details.

We look forward to working with you.

Communication 2 - Shaping a Care Association for Norfolk: Consultation Events: Have Your Say

As you’ll know from our earlier messages, work is under way to create a Care Association for Norfolk to support you.

The most important part of this project is consulting widely with the adult social care sector to understand what services you would want from a Care Association. A series of ten consultation events have been planned for early October 2018.  A list of dates and links to the booking system are given below. 

These sessions have been co-designed by the Norfolk Care Association Executive Steering Group, and University of East Anglia and the University of Suffolk. They are all about exploring your ideas on what a Care Association for Norfolk could achieve, how it could help your work and your organisation, and contribute to positive care provision.

To help get the discussion going, and to give everyone a chance to join in, we are recruiting people who understand adult social care to work as Market Connectors. They will be facilitating discussions using examples from other Care Associations around the country to spark ideas and conversations.

Following these events, the Universities of East Anglia and Suffolk will analyse your responses and use them to inform an online survey to be sent to all social care providers in Norfolk. The results of the survey together with all the other data gathered will be used to make recommendations to the Executive Steering Group on how a Care Association might be structured, how it might operate and what services it might provide

We look forward to hearing your views.
