Communications support

Advice and practical support on communicating with the social care sector

The social care sector is large, diverse and constantly changing. When you’re developing your plan to engage and communicate with the sector, it’s easy to overlook influential stakeholders – or to waste limited resources on inefficient channels.

SCIE can help you to develop and deliver a cost-effective communications and stakeholder engagement plan.

Learning into Practice Project summits

SCIE provided bookings and venue management for three summits on learning from children’s safeguarding serious case reviews. All events were rapidly oversubscribed and SCIE developed a process for ensuring a wide range of backgrounds and sectors were represented. Given the high level of interest in the sessions, SCIE also developed a process for those who were unable to attend to register their interest in further information about the project.
