4:00pm

5:15pm

featuring

Kate Morrissey National Implementation Lead for RECONNECT and Senior Programme Manager - Health and Justice Inclusive Workforce Programme │ NHS England and NHS Improvement

and

The Revolving Doors Agency Lived Experience Team

InsightsOnline are delighted to present this web based seminar in partnership with The academy for Social Justice.

For many people release from prison is a crisis point. They are leaving a supported and regimented environment where their needs (health, housing etc.) are met, to one with little or no support and uncertainties. Not only are they responsible for themselves, they may also have interrupted care pathways and are often without accommodation. They also tend to have low level self-seeking behavior and a distrust of statutory services linked to previous negative experiences, such as being taken into care.

This seminar will explore what this gap looks and feels like for those with Lived Experience and also share their thoughts on how they have helped to co-produce the care after custody service RECONNECT* and the vision for the future.

*RECONNECT, starts working with people before they leave prisonand helps them to make the transition to community-based services that will provide the health and care support that they need.

Please note you must be a member of the Academy to attend an event. Membership and services are free and you can join when booking your place on Eventbrite

Heidi Tweedie│Director │Moray Wellbeing Hub CIC

Changing services is a cultural project and in this free seminar from The Academy for Social Justice we will offer an alternative to the kind of transactional, target based culture that currently dominates.

Heidi and Gary will discuss how we develop empathy, trusted relationships, openness, transparency and a sense of shared endeavour to build new culture, based on mutual respect, equality and a focus on what matters both for staff and for people using services.

This seminar will also look at the macro and the micro with active practical examples. These examples will aim to inspire and give practical tools to delegates in mobilising increased ownership at all system levels, sharing learning of key tools such as reflective practice, appreciative enquiry and the CHIME framework.
