Support With Confidence & Infection Prevention and Control Project: Provider Engagement Group Application Form

Closes 31 Oct 2022

Opened 8 Sep 2022

Overview

Are you passionate about making services the best they can be? Then Support with Confidence needs your help. We're looking for six providers who are accredited members of the scheme to join our quarterly engagement group. 

Read on to find out more and apply.  

Background

The Support With Confidence Scheme (SWC) is East Sussex County Council’s locally-owned accreditation scheme which approves local care and support providers. Many are personal assistants (PAs) and micro-businesses currently operating in the unregulated sector of the social care market. The overall purpose of the accreditation scheme is to enhance the quality and experience of people’s care.

The SWC scheme works closely with the Community-based Social Care Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Project. The IPC project provides infection control information, training and support to unregulated community-based social care providers. Its overall purpose is to enhance the knowledge of infection prevention of control practices amongst unregulated community-based providers, carers, and volunteers. The aim is to minimise the risk of transmission within the community.

SWC and the IPC project would like to engage and consult with providers about key policy, practice, and decisions. This would provide a valuable perspective to inform decisions on the content of surveys, event planning, and also training and development.

Who can apply?

We are looking for up to 6 people to join this Provider Engagement Group. We are looking for providers who are accredited members of the SWC scheme and who are able to commit up to 3 hours of their time for meetings four times a year. You can find more information in the role description on the next page. 

Why take part?

By joining, you’ll be making a difference to a joint Adult Social Care and Public Health Project that supports social care providers to provide safe support to hundreds of people living in the community. So, if you’re passionate about making services the best they can be, we want to hear from you!
