Quick Bite for Lunch

Who Are These Sessions Perfect For?

These convenient sessions are suitable for anyone looking to lead (and support others to lead) a fulfilling life, no matter what ‘good’ looks like for them.

Quick Bite for Lunch webinars are ideal for anyone interested in learning more about Personalisation, Self-Directed Support and Strengths-Based Approaches by building their understanding from the stories around how these approaches have made a real difference for the people we’ve worked alongside. They are open to anyone looking for information around the Self-Directed Support options available and the values and approaches which underpin them.

Designed for busy people, these sessions operate over lunchtime and will provide attendees with practical tools and resources to take away and put what they’ve learnt straight into practice.

Why Are Imagineer Running Quick Bite for Lunch Webinars?

At Imagineer, we recognise how much pressure is on the Health and Social Care, Community and Volunteer sectors at present. We know that your time is precious, so we have designed these webinars as a great opportunity to network with like-minded people during your lunch break! Our goal is to shine a light on topics that don’t often get discussed and can help to shape and improve your practice. The sessions are designed to briefly introduce a ‘bite-sized’ topic, supported by stories and examples from practice. It’s an opportunity to have lunch together and learn from each other. We’ll share a free tool or resource you can take away from each session to embed within your own practice. Each series of six webinars will focus on a different subject area.

Our next Quick Bite for Lunch Sessions: “Introduction to Support Brokerage”

Deep Dive Webinars

Who Are These Sessions Aimed At?

Regardless of whether you are a person in receipt of a Personal Health Budget/Personal Budget wanting to learn more about self-directing your own support, a person who works in a provider organisation delivering services for people who receive Personal Budgets or if you’re a Health and Social Care professional; you’re guaranteed to pick up on some exciting new and actionable ideas!

These sessions can even benefit your community-based organisation or voluntary group too! You may wish to join in with these valuable webinars to help others using your lived experiences!

Why Are Imagineer Hosting Deep Dive Webinars?

Sometimes, in order to build a full picture of the context and complexity of an issue, the topic needs to be explored in depth. That’s exactly what these sessions are designed to do. These lively webinars will examine subjects of the Health & Social Care process, Self-Directed Support, Support Brokerage, Graphic Facilitation, Strengths-Based Approaches and the vital role communities can play within these approaches. They will also address the challenges that practitioners face that hinder progress and what improvements can be made to care and support provision.

Deep Dive webinars will be held in a friendly and open environment where all opinions will be welcomed and accepted. By coming together, we hope to share ideas, experiences and learn from one another. Sessions will be supplemented by takeaway resources.

Upcoming Deep Dive Webinars:

Our next Deep Dive webinar will take place on 3rd August 2021, 1pm – 3pm

Webinar theme: Ordinary Residence and Housing Solutions

In this webinar we will be exploring the subject of ‘Ordinary residence’ in relation to Health & Social care eligibility and funding responsibility. We will look at the main legal frameworks which govern this process, and determine who holds funding responsibility for a person’s care & support, based on where the person is ‘ordinarily resident’. We also be exploring the housing issues which are connected with this topic, and thinking about the range of options available when somebody with health and social care needs is seeking accommodation. We will cover what can be achieved by opening up the options, exploring creative approaches which go beyond what is available to what is possible; thinking about how a circle of support can assist this and looking at housing as a citizenship issue rather than referring to it as a ‘service user’ arrangement.

Cost: £35 per place

Thought-Leadership Discussions

Who Are These Sessions Ideal For?

These dynamic sessions are perfect for any health and social care professionals, community-based organisations voluntary groups and service delivery organisations who wish to challenge the way things are done and influence positive change. In these webinars, we will be thinking ‘big picture’ in terms of societal change, systems, process and public policy. If you’re brimming with thoughts and ideas or are looking for inspiration to bring about a fairer and more empowering society then we want to meet you! You can expect a thought-provoking and creative presentation, followed by time for discussion and sharing ideas and perspectives.

Why Are Imagineer Running Thought Leadership Webinars?

We encounter a range of situations and circumstances in our line of work at Imagineer and we’re keen to share what we’ve learnt through our practice and experience with others. We’re also eager to introduce attendees to different ways of doing things within the areas of health and social care and community. In fact, in some cases we have been responsible for creating new strategies and approaches to supporting individuals, operating under our ethos of ‘what is possible, not just what’s available’.

In turn, we hope to learn from other attendees and encourage new ideas to be generated that advocate for positive transformation in the world of social care, health and wider society.

Testimonials

“I completed Support Brokerage Training with the National Brokerage Network in October 2011 and since then I’ve been working as an independent support broker…the ‘Quick Bite for Lunch’ sessions on ‘Rights’ have given me good insight to the bigger picture and other useful resources. I like 30 minute sessions (quick and punchy) and they’re short enough not to need to organise your whole day to accommodate them.”

Jane- Independent Support Broker, Buckinghamshire
