A Brokerage Framework for Scotland – roadshow session

Date: 28 May 2024

Time: 10.30 - 11.30am

Location: Online via Teams

Following the launch of a new national Brokerage Framework for Scotland, we’re running a series of online roadshow events to share the Framework and discuss what it means for supported people and those working across the social care support sector in Scotland.

The new framework sets out a national approach to Community Brokerage services in Scotland, describing the values and principles that underpin this approach and detailing how it works in practice.

The Framework captures the work undertaken so far to define the Community Brokerage model in Scotland, and sets out steps to further promote and develop this model, with the aim of achieving better outcomes for people who need support.

What is Community Brokerage?

The main aim of Community Brokerage is to help people who need support live their life as they choose, and have their support needs met. It is a way of working that focuses on early intervention, maximising access to information, informal support, natural relationships, and community activities. Where formal support is needed, Community Brokers work with people as much or as little as is needed, to enable them arrange and manage support.

Roadshow sessions

Join us for one of our online sessions to learn more about the Brokerage Framework and what it means for supported people and those working in social care support in Scotland.

At the session you’ll find out more about:

  • the model of Community Brokerage as defined in the new national framework
  • the benefits of using the Community Brokerage approach, for both supported people and those who assist them to access support
  • the tools available to help people who provide brokerage services deliver high quality support
  • the next steps for the Community Brokerage model and how it will be developed further across Scotland.

The sessions are free and will take place online using Teams.

Who are the sessions for?
