Participation Leads Forum

After consultation through our weekly RI meetings, we agreed to set up a specific group for participation leads forum, building on the great feedback we received for our managers’ forum meetings.

Outstanding homes place young people at the centre of all they do. Following consultation with Registered Managers and Responsible Individuals we are developing a community of practice for those holding lead responsibility for young people’s participation win residential care.

We have put in place a low cost membership approach with regular meetings, CPD, joint project work and shared peer support to ensure young people on your room feel supported, heard and central to their development and that of the home.

Membership is open to anyone working in residential children’s care – it need not be a manager but someone taking a lead responsibility for participation work.

Participants pay £99 + VAT per annum to attend up to three forums a year. See below for details.

forum information and booking:

Membership is open to anyone working in residential children’s care – it need not be a manager but someone taking a lead responsibility for participation work.  This is a great opportunity to share ideas, seek support and improve practice. 

Nominated staff can join the group for £99+vat per annum, which will entitle them to attend the 3 group meetings and work together on issues of common concern. Typically the sessions will include specific CPD input on an area of research, practice, guidance or issue of contemporary concern (another name for COVID implications!). Sometimes we will invite guests from commissioning, the regulator, or speakers.

We are keen to make the model accessible and supportive to residential homes, so additional memberships each accrue a £20 discount per membership, i.e. subsequent memberships are £79, £59, £39, £19 then free. More areas coming soon…
