Quarriers 20 Aug 2018

Purchase of Equipment/ Licences: The rural nature of both Moray and Aberdeenshire means heavy reliance for staff on handwritten documentation, typed up on return to their work base. This workload duplication can lead to delays in data submission to our database. This is why we are seeking funding to equip 20 support staff (6 in Moray and 14 in Aberdeenshire) with a 4G-compatible, secure, internet-accessible tablet, enabling them to input carer information directly to Charitylog, complete ACSPs and YCSs in electronic format, and access online information services, all while in the carer's presence, regardless of venue. This will: - allow timely completion of ACSPs and YCSs, working collaboratively with carers in the comfort of their chosen environment - create efficiencies, allowing staff more time to spend with carers in working to achieve outcomes - improve communication, enabling immediate updating of carer records, filing of ACSPs/YCSs, accessing reports/emails/information as required - transform the way our workforce operate, allowing them to be more adaptable in their support; this includes the potential to use Video Conferencing with colleagues and other partners. In particular, young carers may prefer to communicate via email, video call or social media - increase responsiveness, accuracy and immediate availability of data, ensuring greater compatibility with the reporting requirements of the Carers Act. Training/Consultancy for Data Collection and Retrieval: Individual carer support plans identify personal outcomes, monitored throughout the support relationship. Quarriers has adopted the Outcomes Star model of outcomes measurement, with the Carers Outcomes Star and My Star the two main tools. We have incorporated their principles into the assessment process for all carers, allowing a standard approach to outcomes identification and monitoring. However, although a valuable model, the Outcomes Star does not correlate exactly with local eligibility criteria and measures. It therefore requires some adaptation to fully support implementation of the Carers Act. We are seeking funding to engage Wren and Greyhound, independent third sector consultants, to help us evaluate and report on our outcomes monitoring and reporting, and develop a more robust, locally-appropriate series of measures. This will include consultation with carers to ensure their views and experiences are reflected, and with Local Authorities regarding their reporting and information requirements. It will also take account of the Scottish Government Carers Census dataset. Together, this will allow us to advance our current method of data collection and retrieval. We will share our findings with other carer support providers in Scotland Our experienced management staff will ensure the consultants' recommendations are rolled out via training and ongoing support to all staff involved in supporting carers, ensuring effective application of the improved model and data collection methods.
