Please see note below from Essex Registered Managers network:
My name is Kerry Austin and I am a Registered Manager working within Essex. I have formed a Registered Manager's Network (as the chair!) with Skills For Care. The group meets every three months, normally in Kelvedon and we network, listen to guest speakers around hot topics and have the opportunity to get together with like minded Manager's - all battling with the same lonely issues. It's tough running a service and wearing all the 'hats' at the same time; we all understand this and are there for each other.
Not only do we have the group network meetings but we also have a WhatsApp group which Registered Manager's can join, to not only keep up to date with what's going on in Essex but also an advice line for guidance (and sometimes a much needed moan!).
If you are interested in joining the network then please contact Kerry Austin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07919 522341 for more information.
The MyHomelife Leadership Support Group offers care managers/deputies space and support to help them reflect upon their own practice, and that of their staff, and engage in a 'journey' of positive culture change within their own homes.
