No Wrong Door Network Overarching Outcomes To establish a “Network of Organisations and or Services” which are committed to not sending people away To facilitate the design of a NO WRONG DOOR network and its interface with other work-streams To facilitate an “Experts by Experience” process that will set and check the standards of all participating Organisations To encourage cultural shifts within Organisations
No Wrong Door Network We will achieve this by: Identify priority needs of the initial user group Complete a service mapping exercise Engage with Organisations to establish interest and commitment to participation in potential “pilot” sites Engage with Experts by Experience to support, influence and monitor the model design (s) Establish across work –streams interactions Work with all engaged Organisations to influence change
No Wrong Door Network – Help Needed Looking for a range of organisations to nominate their interest in being an initial player in the pilot (s) Your views on what criteria they believe should be established to determine pilot site participation / selection: e.g. Size; Services provided; Geographical delivery; Specialism and Niche; Also potential organisations to be a critical friend to the work-stream and pilot (s). What methods would be beneficial and most effect from their opinion in how we as work-streams should communicate with them to: Will gather information on service mapping; Keep them informed of progress; Opportunity influence and suggest What are the initial barriers to participation and how may they be overcome?
Lead Workers Talk to the same person Gets to know you well Helps you to get the right services
Lead Workers – help needed Experience of Lead working type role; Survey monkey/ questionnaire on stall; Groups not often reached;
Signposting, Inreach and Outreach We will: establish new signposting and referral pathways and facilitate easier access to services Target support and interventions at key transition points for known clients with complex needs Target intensive outreach to those who are disengaged or outside of the system (i.e. guns and gangs, excluded from many/all services) Have in place “trusted points of contact” and “information points”
Signposting Inreach and Outreach – Help Needed Where are the key transition points for known clients with complex needs? How/where can we engage with people with complex needs who are disengaged from services? Where/who would be seen as “trusted points of contact” for people with complex needs?
Tell your story once Common assessment Sharing information Confidentiality
Intelligent Common Assessment Framework – Help Needed What would attract your organisation to buy into this What would be your concerns? Do you use/ have you used a common Assessment Framework?
Women Exploring if/what specific arrangements are needed for women; E.g. Different ‘trusted point of contacts’; different information needed in the ICAT?; Meeting tomorrow to explore this as these questions; Making sure women Experts by Experience get involved;
STALLS Offer your expertise. Discuss your concerns; Use forms, paper and business cards; Refreshments;
Competitive process based on contract- especially for work more than the value of £10,000; Core Group members and others involved in developing a particular area of work will withdraw from the process and have no involvement – if they are considering bidding for a delivery contract – before contract is drawn up; Experts by Experience on tender panels; (trained and supported); Smaller orgs - how can we ensure opportunities for them; A reasonable timescale (there will be information in the business plan); all contract is one place – a notification system; Contractors will need to demonstrate SOS – earlier slide; What would reassurance around ‘fairness’ would you want to see?
Follow up actions Get on our radar – complete survey monkey; Check if your organisation is SOS one?
