SureCare Staff Support

SureCare Staff SupportAt SureCare we are aware of the pivotal role our staff plays in transforming the lives of our young people. We value and respect all the members of our team and want to ensure that they are happy and content in their role at SureCare.

At each home, the team votes for an ‘Employee of the Month’ who is presented with a small prize. Votes are then totalled so that someone from each home can win ‘Employee of the Year’.

Being a member of SureCare staff is a deeply rewarding experience but not without its stresses, disappointments and harrowing moments and so we have taken care to create an infrastructure to enable our staff to offload stress and develop personally as well as learn new strategies to cope with the difficulties which they may face.

Clinical supervision Keyworkers

12 sessions offered per annum

Keyworkers have access to psychological input relating to specific areas of work identified. For example, the keyworker can bring to a supervisory meeting a difficulty currently being experienced and come away aware of how Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, CBT, and other solutions can be applied to deal specifically with it.

Also, co-keyworking sessions take place with the psychologist and keyworker where this is appropriate for the topic and young person involved.

Clinical supervision general staff

Monthly clinical supervision and consultation with our psychologist is available to all staff. Professional and personal issues can be discussed and this is entirely confidential.

Peer supervision keyworker and general staff

Monthly meetings of staff chaired by the psychologist take place without a management presence. This helps frank discussion of systems, procedures and strategies and resolution of general working problems as well as specific issues.
