Early Years RIC Sub Group

The Early Years RIC Sub Group met last week to discuss and evaluate the event “It’s a Good Time to be Two” which took place on 12th Feb for staff who work with two year old children across the RIC.

The feedback from attendees has been extremely positive especially in giving people the opportunity to network and share across the four authorities.  There was a request for more training on Improvement Methodology. The feedback will be analysed in further detail and a plan for the way forward will be created.

The Care Inspectorate is encouraging care services across Scotland to bring together younger and older people for everyone’s benefit.

A new resource full of good practice examples is being launched to give care services ideas on how to bring generations together in a variety of care settings in a way that improves the quality of their lives.
