Unit 1: Use and develop systems that promote communication
1. In my line of work there are many groups of people that I have to communicate with, for instance the service users receiving our services, their advocates and their close family and friends, current candidates, new potential candidates and service users, outside agencies such as Care Quality Commission, Social workers, Health Professionals also my employees and managers. Although I have not yet needed to communicate with POVA/SOVA, ISA or the local child/adult protection services I would know who to contact if I needed to and all of the relevant information is held in our office, my manager is currently taking charge of these.
There are different ways in which I communicate: face to face conversation, using e-mail, using the computer to send SMS messages, using the telephone, fax, Makaton signs, gestures, picture cards PECS (picture exchange communication system), and the use of Google translator on the internet to translate word documents to other languages.

The Occupational Therapist (Kevel Gumbs) requested that once I had completed the risk assessment and care plan type ups that I could send them to him via secure email (to protect confidentiality). The company had feedback from Mandy Whitehouse the psychologist for Ealing she said the new care plan/risk assessments were impressive. This has given me great confidence that the new care plans in place are now in fact person centred and catering for their specific needs as

    1.1 An understanding of the positive values of equality, respect for diversity and inclusion in care work is paramount and the importance of it never underestimated. Circumstances, which bring individuals into contact with support workers/carers by very nature, would suggest that the recipients of that care are likely to be vulnerable in one way or another. Inevitably, whilst caring for others and engaging with them about situations about their lives often involves some exercise of power, which has potential to be misused and abused. How the care/support worker understands and approaches the responsibility of their role will have a direct impact on either increasing equality and getting rid of discrimination and disadvantage, or helping to reinforce, perpetuate or even increase inequality, discrimination and disadvantage. It is argued that discrimination is often made worse unwittingly and arises from ignorance, insensitivity or common beliefs that are not challenged. Discrimination has no place in care contexts. The role of the care manager is promoted as a key organisational value. Raising staff awareness about equality, diversity and inclusion, encouraging debate and devising strategies of care that empower rather than the opposite are essential features of the manager’s role.…
