Who’s looking after the people looking after the people?

To mark day one of Safeguarding Adults Week, we are hosting a free workshop from Ian Braid about how individuals can look after their own wellbeing when supporting others. The workshop will be hosted online from 10-11am on Monday 20 November.

This hour long workshop will bring together people from a range of sectors to discuss and share good practice in looking after those who have a responsibility to look after others. Sport England’s strategy, ‘Uniting the Movement’, aims to address inequalities across the country. To do that, people from sport, activity and health will come together and collaborate to make a sustainable difference for others. We need to take care of ourselves individually and collectively so we can care for others.

This session will be led and facilitated by Ian Braid M.Sc. M.CIMSPA. The workshop will include:

  • An introduction from Ian sharing his own lived experience and passion for duty of care (to self and others).
  • Breakout groups to discuss and share examples of good practice, challenges faced, results etc.
  • Sharing the discussions and outputs from the groups .
  • A summary of key themes from Ian.
