Liverpool Social Care Partnership, in collaboration with the British Heart Foundation, are offering 150 FREE places (25 per session) to learn CPR, this is a lifesaving skill.

Awareness of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

posted Aug 1, 2017, 3:17 AM by Rebecca Barker

Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a serious anxiety-related condition where a person experiences frequent intrusive and unwelcome obsessional thoughts, often followed by repetitive compulsions, impulses or urges.

The illness affects as many as 12 in every 1000 people (1.2% of the population) from young children to adults, regardless of gender or social or cultural background. In fact, it can be so debilitating and disabling that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has actually ranked OCD in the top ten of the most disabling illnesses of any kind, in terms of lost earnings and diminished quality of life.

Based on current estimates for the UK population, there are potentially around 741,504 people living with OCD at any one time.  

This course has been developed and mapped to:

  • The Government document - No Health without Mental Health
  • Skills for Care - The Common Core Principles to support good mental health and well-being in adult social care

Lone Worker Awareness Training

posted Jul 12, 2017, 6:11 AM by Rebecca Barker

There are nearly 6 million lone workers in the UK (Office of National Statistics)

There is no specific law dealing with lone working. However, all health and safety legislation applies equally to lone workers and in some cases, is even more applicable. Unfortunately employers often forget their responsibilities to lone workers, in particular in respect of issues such as risk assessment, welfare provision, recording of injuries, first aid provision and consultation.

 

The Health and Safety Executive defines lone workers as ‘those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision’. There are many situations where staff work alone both on site and off site.

However Employers still need to comply with their legal duties towards lone workers under:

  • Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

The training will take place on:

 

  • Date -  Friday 21st July 2016 - 9:30PM – 12:45PM
  • Venue :   Liverpool Social Care Partnership CIC, West Derby Community Association, Lowlands, 13 Hayman’s Green, West Derby, L12 7JG

Cost – LSCP Members (2017 membership paid) £38.50
              Non-Members  - £50.00

 

Please note that tea, coffee and light refreshments will be served during the day, lunch however will not.

 

I have attached flyers which give further details of the courses, in addition to a booking form, should you wish to reserve places.
