At Imagineer we offer a range of interesting, useful and thought provoking webinars.

These webinars aim to increase understanding and awareness of;

  • Self Direction
  • Community
  • Person Centred Practice
  • Rights as determined by Legislative Frameworks
  • Taking positive action to achieve lasting and meaningful change

People who have working knowledge and lived experience of self direction have found these webinars valuable for further learning and refresh knowledge.

Our engaging webinars range from short and light, informative Quick Bite for Lunch sessions (30 minutes in length) through to explorative Deep Dives (2 hours in length) that analyse and discuss key topics and Thought Leadership webinars that promise to innovate, debate and shake up the status quo!


Quick Bite for Lunch

Who Are These Sessions Perfect For?

Quick Bite for Lunch webinars are ideal for anyone interested in learning more about Community, Self-Directed Support and Strengths-Based Approaches.

These sessions are practical, explorative, engaging and based on story telling.

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.

Quick Bite for Lunch webinars about Person-Centred Approaches and Self-Directed Support

Why Are Imagineer Running Quick Bite for Lunch Webinars?

At Imagineer, we recognise how busy people in caring for their own families and when working within Health and Social Care, Community and Volunteer sectors. 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.

Our goal is to shine a light on topics that don’t often get discussed and can help to shape and improve our knowledge and 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.

At each session we will share a free tool or resource you can take away to use and embed within your own practice.

Each series of six webinars will focus on a different subject area.

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 or if you’re a Health and Social Care professional or a community-based organisation or voluntary group; you’re guaranteed to pick up on some exciting new and actionable ideas!

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.

Thought-Leadership Discussions

Who Are These Sessions Ideal For?

These dynamic sessions are perfect for any family member, carer, person with lived experience, 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 many ways 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 [renamed Support Brokerage Network in 2021] 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
