Leadership: the focus in Wiltshire

In the last eighteen months, the My Home Life Wiltshire programme has been focussing on the best practice theme of leadership. A group of eleven care home managers has been funded by Wiltshire Council and NHS Wiltshire to take part in a Leadership Programme, designed to develop the skills needed to support the culture change that underpins My Home Life.

The programme has been a great success and the Council will now be working in partnership with these managers to co-develop and co-deliver My Home Life workshops to other care homes across Wiltshire. These workshops are designed to share the skills needed to integrate other best practice themes into the day to day culture of care homes.

In conjunction with this, the Council is continuing its programme of Dignity in Care training. This is provided free to staff of care homes in Wiltshire and to date approximately two hundred care staff have received this training.

Kathryn Norton of Wiltshire Council said: “We are really pleased that the My Home Life project has generated so much interest and enthusiasm . The managers involved have developed some key skills in managing and delivering change and we are excited that they are keen to continue to work with us and share best practice to other homes in Wiltshire.”
