Getting to the Heart of What Matters – Ipswich

The role of a support worker is complex and multi-faceted. Paid staff can make a significant contribution to a person’s life – enabling the person to live a rich life and pursue their own unique goals and dreams. What lies at the heart of the role is, however, frequently invisible. When we fall into the habit of talking about “hours”, and tasks, routines and schedules, it’s easy to be distracted from what really matters about supporting people well. This full day workshop will be an opportunity for support workers to critically reflect upon the essential purpose of their role, the values that drive “support”, and the sorts of relationships which are core to supporting someone well, particularly in relation to valued roles and community belonging.
