CCPS is developing a programme of work to support members’ adoption of digital technology in social care.  Our work is organised around three objectives:

  • increase CCPS members’ individual capacity to understand and adopt digital technology
  • increase CCPS members’ capacity to engage with each other in developing shared digital solutions
  • increase CCPS members’ capacity to engage with and influence statutory partners’ digital technology strategic planning, including specifically the work of the Digital Office for Scottish Local Government and the Scottish Government’s digital health and care strategy

We have a project board and a reference group.  The project board supports the planning and delivery of our activities.  The reference group is a growing network of members interested in digital tech, who share ideas and provide suggestions and information to help shape our activities and support our advocacy role.  If you are interested in participating in either group, please get in touch.

Recent Activity

On 30th October 2018, we held an event on Digital Tech and the Social Care Workforce.  The aim of this gathering was to learn more about plans for implementation of the SG workforce domain of the Digital Health and Social Care Strategy; how the SSSC is engaging with SG and the NHS on workforce skills development and current resources; the Care Inspectorate’s Attend Anywhere pilot project; and SCVO’s Essential Digital Skills toolkit and Digital Participation Charter.  Several CCPS members shared their experience of developing digital skills in their workforce, including Alzheimer Scotland, Addaction, Sol Connect, and the Action Group.

Previous Activity

The CCPS Let’s Get Digital event on 27th September 2017 provided members and sector partners with an opportunity to learn, get inspired and network on all things digital.  We heard about the Scottish Government’s digital policy agenda, the development of the health and social care digital strategy, the work of the recently created Scottish Local Government Digital Office and the lessons learned by Blackwood Homes and Care in embracing digital tech.

The event also included 15 different ‘snapshot sessions’ showcasing inspiring digital innovation in social care developed by members and others for the benefit of service users and organisations.

Our twitter storify gives a good flavour of the day.
