Carers of West Dunbartonshire Limited 30 Jul 2019
The grant will help us to upgrade our IT system, a review has identified a challenge in that our server is several years old and some of our PC's are developing problems. We have identified a need to put in place more efficient server hardware and PCs– allowing us to improve efficiency and ensure that the new data management system which we installed early in 2019 can be used to maximum effect. We would like the funding for the following: 1 x Fujitsu Primergy TX1330 M4 1 x APC Smart UPS 1500va 9 x Fujitsu Esprimo D538 desktop PCs 1 x Fujitsu Esprimo D538 desktop PC (for the backup process) Including installation & configuration. This includes backing up our existing email and migrating it over to Office 365, set up the users and any distribution lists/shared mailboxes required. Storeage Craft Recovery Ability will also be installed. This is a suite of software to protect our system more securely.
Inverclyde Carers Centre 29 Jul 2019
We want to provide additional Salesforce and Microsoft 365 training for our team of staff and volunteers. Initial training was provided to the staff team shortly after moving to cloud based computing last year however since then staff members have left, new staff have joined us and key administrative staff have returned from maternity leave. As a small organisation with limited IT support this has meant that much of skills and knowledge we were building was lost along with part of the support mechanism which we had created. We recognise that we have varying levels of confidence across the team and that some need more support than others to ensure they can work in an efficient manner and be confident using Microsoft 365 and that others are confident supporting them to do this. For that reason we wish to bring in a local organisation Software Training Scotland to provide staff, on-site at Inverclyde Carers Centre with Microsoft 365 training to all our staff. Analysis of Individual Training Needs/Training Plan: Producing a detailed analysis of each member of staff's requirements and producing an individual training plan to achieve a set of mutually agreed, individual learning outcomes. Group Learning Sessions: Providing group learning sessions in Microsoft 365 where content is applicable to all staff. Individual Learning Sessions: Providing individual learning support in Microsoft 365 where content is specific to the individual. We believe that by observing our staff in their working environment, trainers will be better placed to address issues faced and identify solutions using the available apps, this will lead to a more tailored learning plan and better outcomes. The impact will be our staff are more confident using technology to support carers and record work. Thus reducing the amount of time and effort required to evidence support provided and communicate better with Carers. We will measure success by comparing skills, knowledge and understanding of staff at the beginning and end of learning.
Perth & Kinross Association Of Voluntary Service 30 Jul 2019
We would like to work in partnership with Lead Scotland. They are a voluntary organisation which is set up to empower disabled young people and adults and carers across Scotland to access learning opportunities. We would like to work with them around raising awareness of the Jointly APP created by Carers UK. Jointly APP is an innovative mobile and online app that is designed by carers for carers. Jointly makes caring easier, less stressful and more organised by making communicationand coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message. PKAVS would like to work in partnership with Lead Scotland in training up our staff and volunteers who have direct access with carers on how to set up and use the Jointly app. We would then like to work with Lead Scotland on delivering group sessions for carers as well as the option for Lead Scotland staff to accompany PKAVS support workers to carers homes so they can be shown how to set up the app. These home visits may be particularly beneficial due to the geography of Perth & Kinross meaning that it isn't always possible for carers to be able to travel to a central point for these opportunities. Ideally we would like Lead to deliver 3 two hour sessions in August to PKAVS staff and volunteers on this Jointly app. Depending on numbers attending that Lead would think manageable we may also be able to extend an invite out to staff from other third sector carer related organisations for them to attend these training sessions too. We would then like to look to set up 2 training sessions each month (2 hours each) for groups of carers to attend. These would be delivered throughout Perth & Kinross and not just in Perth City. We would also like to retain some of this time though just in case there was the need to do some home visits to carers (especially those living in very rural locations who cant easily access transport). We have allocated a budget for 30 one to one visits during the 6 months from October to March (this would give us the time needed from receiving the funding to promoting then setting up these groups). The only other thing we would like funded is 3 tablets. Not all carers will have access to their own device to see the app. What we'd like to do is have some available to take on home visits and possibly leave with the carer for a spell to see if the app helps. If this was the case we could then put in an application to our Time4Me respite fund for carers so we wouldn't just take the tablet back but could instead award up to £250 to the carer to purchase one of their own if they had found having this available to them really beneficial.
Quarriers 29 Jul 2019
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.
