Welcome to Unity Dorset: Approved Dorset Council Framework Provider & ISF Provider
We have introduced our workplace champion scheme! This is something that we are really excited about because it provides our support workers with additional opportunities and build on the knowledge they already have.
The whole idea of the scheme is to have a support worker to be an expert in a particular area and be the “go to” for advice, knowledge, information and training. This service will not only be for our support workers but for the individuals we support and their family and friends.
We have the following champion categories for our employees
Positive Behaviour Support/Challenging Behaviours
Schizophrenia and Psychosis
Service User/Family/Friends Well-being
Service User Induction
A poll has gone out allowing our support workers to select the area they would like to champion. Then the work will begin to make them bigger champions than the ones they already are!! Once we have our champions in place we will share with you all who they are and how to contact them via our website.
Our next plan with our champion scheme is to provide champion opportunities to the individuals we support as well as their family and friends.
