Quarriers (360G-SCVO-a0g0N00002FvcntQAB)

To enable FWWs to provide the most appropriate support for Adult Carers and Young Carers, developing enhanced assessment and interview skills is essential, and contributes to identification of individual carer outcomes through the ACSP and YCS process. We are seeking funding to increase capacity within the staff teams across Aberdeenshire and Moray in relation to: • understanding and creatively supporting identification, recording and achievement of personal outcomes • having appropriate knowledge of a range of assessment and interview techniques to support carers to understand and acknowledge the challenges they face and the steps possible to overcoming them • having the practical skills to motivate, encourage and empower carers to take ownership and make progress The training will enable staff to; • more effectively support those carers who don't recognise their caring role or its impact on them to explore their circumstances and identify areas where change and improvement could be made • support carers to complete more detailed and focused ACSPs and YCS, leading to improved outcomes recording and monitoring and increased engagement from carers in the process • tailor their approach to individual carers more effectively, through more accurate identification of key issues and areas of concern • more appropriately support and encourage those carers who are unable to see what control and choice they have over their situation, by enabling incremental change through outcomes-based support programme planning Training will include 'Carers Outcomes Star', 'Motivational Interviewing' (MI) and 'Intermediate Motivational Interviewing' (IMI). The training will be provided by Triangle Consulting and the Scottish Drugs Forum and will mainly take place at two locations, in the service offices in Elgin (Moray) and Inverurie (Aberdeenshire). This will allow easy access to training for staff and volunteers in both local authority areas whilst keeping travel costs and staff rota disruption to a minimum. The 'Carer Outcome Star' training will take place over 1 day for 15 FWW in the Elgin office. The 'Motivational Interviewing' training will take place at over two days in Quarriers Elgin (Moray) office for up to 20 FWW and over 2 days for up to 18 FWW in our Inverurie (Aberdeenshire) office. The 'Intermediate Motivational Interview' Training is a 3-day course and will take place in our Inverurie office for 6 senior staff. We have included costs for lunches and refreshments at all the training. Accommodation and travel costs for 3 staff attending the Intermediate Motivational Interviewing over 3 days have been included in the budget.2. Training Evaluation; All FWW and Senior Staff training in Motivational Interviewing, Intermediate Motivational Interviewing and Outcome Star training will initially be evaluated from Training feedback forms which will be administered immediately after the training has taken place. At Quarriers staff supervision reviews take place every 6 weeks. Once staff have been able to use their learned knowledge and skills, this will be evidenced on their training evaluation report. The impact on carers will be measured to via ACSP/YCS completion in terms of improved recording of outcomes. That also forms part of regular staff supervision and caseload monitoring.
