Community of Change Residential: Problem-solving

25th & 26th April 2017

"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them."  Albert Einstein

The first residential event of the year for members of In Control's Community of Change took place in Milton Keynes.

The first day saw inspirational talks from both Andy Walker, in which he shared his plans to climb Kilimanjaro's base-camp, and Will Case, who talked about his journey so far. In another session we looked at what's working well when working with families, with examples from North Yorkshire and Devon. The day finished by identifying and prioritising the tricky issues to be worked on.

Martin Routledge started day two by sharing about In Control's Network for Self-Directed Support. There were also sessions devoted to solution circles and hot topics, which included: personal health budgets, how to make the most of the POET feedback we've gathered, co-production and community, good person-centred planning and culture change, working with schools, and early intervention.

The presentations have been compiled into one PDF, which can be downloaded by clicking on the download below.
