Innovation for independent, inclusive living

Published on 22 Oct 2021

On 25 November (1.30-3pm) we're hosting an online event to explore and build on the evidence base around innovation in independent, inclusive living. 

The Independent Review of Adult Social Care sets out a model for social care and support; new ways of thinking based on relationships, enabling rights, collaboration, and equity. It outlines an ambition, or vision, that

Everyone in Scotland will get the social care support they need to live their lives as they choose and to be active citizens. We will all work together to promote and ensure human rights, wellbeing, independent living and equity.

What evidence do we currently have about what works (and doesn't)? What are the seeds for change we want to nurture and grow; the levers we need to use or the conditions we need to create?

The event will be a mix of guest speakers and opportunities for audience questions and discussion to:

  • Recognise what works and where change is necessary
  • Foreground the perspectives of supported people and support providers
  • Highlight innovation happening now and show what the levers for change are
  • Focus on the future during a time of system change

Speakers include Kiana Kalantar who is an artist, filmmaker and activist; and Robert Sanders, Iriss Information Specialist. 

Who should attend?

This event is for anyone committed to supporting innovation and change to support independent, inclusive living:

  • Practitioners, managers and commissioners of social care and support, particularly of interest to people working in the areas of community-based support and care at home.
  • Supported people and membership organisations.
  • Policy makers, researchers

It's the first in a series of events to support a new way of thinking to deliver on the ambitions of the Independent Review of Adult Social Care.
