Due to an increasingly elderly population and the need to focus on more personalised outcomes for service users, West Lothian Council has recognised that demographic changes will make continued provision of traditional services unsustainable and is therefore transforming the way it operates.
In 21st century social care services, it is imperative to have the right people, with the right skills, in the right place at the right time. This project has delivered training that is up-skilling the care workforce through learning opportunities that are outcome focused.
The programme has helped the Council focus on more preventive/upstream interventions to make the most effective use of its current and shrinking resources to assist people to lead healthier, fitter and fulfilling lives in their local communities. This resonates with service users themselves who have higher expectations and want support and services to help them to maximise their independence and wellbeing at home or in a homely setting.
