Leading to Change: Social Work, Social Care and Health Spotlight Series – Care at Home
virtual | 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
This event is in the past. To view the recording, click here.
Welcome to the first of our new ‘Spotlight Sessions’ – events designed to raise awareness of an idea, approach or research that we believe could interest and inspire those involved in social work, social care, health, and related third and voluntary sectors. This first session is open to all and is recommended for anyone across all sectors interested in understanding more about this.
As Leading to Change, we are delivering a series of awareness sessions relating to core themes within social work and social care with the intention of ‘Shining a Light’ into the areas of the sector that others may know very little or nothing about .
We want to give people insights into roles and functions and the impact on ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ with a view to reinforcing the message about collaborative leadership and the difference it can make.
We will welcome, into the conversation, Karen Marwick, Service Manager, Care at Home Service and there will be the opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation.
This event will be available to add to ‘My Learning’ in the Leading to Change app on completion of attendance.
Service Manager, Care at Home Service, Health and Social Care Partnership
My journey to Service Manager began in 2000 when I joined the Admin Team in Home Care. Over 23 years, I have progressed through the service in many areas and roles. Alongside working full time and raising my now grown children, I completed my Honours Degree in Health and Social Care in my early 40s.
I have always had and continue to have a real passion for our care service and believe that every day we all come to work to ensure our most vulnerable in our communities receive the best service. I am proud of all in our service who endeavour to provide high quality care every day.
The service has had many changes in its delivery over the years. From having a coffee and helping with the hoovering to delivering the complex and critical care we do today and supporting those who have complex conditions to remain at home as long as possible. Without the highly skills, committed and dedicated team none of this would be possible.
