SSSC help communities learn with peer support networks

We are working with health and social care partnerships across Scotland to support the learning and development of the workforce as they move towards integrated services.

actionlearningsetWorking with three integrated partnership areas in Angus, Falkirk and East Ayrshire, we are supporting practitioners to come together and support change through action learning sets.

Action learning sets allow people to spend time together thinking about challenging practice issues and offer the chance to find imaginative and collaborative solutions.

Twenty-seven people from the integrated partnership areas, across health, social care, third and independent sectors are taking the opportunity to:

  • reflect the values and principles of self-directed support including respect, independence, collaboration, innovation, involvement, participation and risk enablement
  • build and strengthen integrated relationships
  • use protected space and time for personal and professional development.

One attendee said:

‘I think action learning sets give you a unique opportunity to focus on a problem and find solutions in a very creative and safe environment. I felt that the group really gelled and was very productive.’

If you would like to hear more about this work or consider how you could use action learning sets in your area please contact Susan Nevill at or Alison Guthrie at
