We’ve been delighted to add Birdston Care Home to our list of link worker organisations in East Dunbartonshire along with Struan Ward in Stobhill it brings the total at the end of January to 11 establishments where Ceartas have regular contact in addition to normal routine casework.
Link workers duties have been varied from regular outreach to attending residents and carers meetings to assisting with specific pieces of work like assisting when significant changes are occurring within the home, evaluation surveys, on-going user involvement or training.
The link worker scheme was targeted towards residential establishments to improve access to advocacy and aimed to build relationships with staff while giving residents and patients the opportunity to find out more about advocacy in an informal basis within a programme of regular outreach and specific issue based meetings.
The establishments signed up to this initiative so far are:
Birdston Care Home
Struan Ward (Stobhill )
We are delighted with the uptake of advocacy via this route but are always open to more organisations signing up. So don’t hesitate to get in touch or if you want to find out more information…
