Client: Buckingham County Council
The delivery of customised workshops, facilitated by Jo Fox with the active input of client managers and practitioners. The workshops aimed to promote the use of ICS as an evidence-based tool which supports positive practice.
“The workshops provided sessions for discussion and feedback and the information gained from these sessions has been essential to enable us to understand the barriers to the practical application of ICS for those working in busy frontline services. The workshops also provided a forum for anticipating the challenges to come in light of Lord Laming's report and the work of the Social Work Taskforce.
Jo is an engaging speaker and her knowledge and experience on the subject matter has been invaluable. The information from the workshops has been collated and will be critical in developing future plans with a view to the positive integration of ICS and practice. We anticipate the continuation of further workshops as part of our ongoing change programme.”
