In 1987, the United Nations Brundtland Commission defined sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” A lofty goal for an equipment service. Maybe not fully achievable in the present for CES, however,  what are we all doing to make our services more sustainable.? Join us to look at what is worthwhile and when is it simply greenwashing? Come and discuss the Four (or more) Rs around more sustainable practices and share ideas. By sharing ideas, by re-thinking, re-using, re-gifting and recycling what we are all already doing we may be able to make some forward steps to being more sustainable in the near future.

Optimising portable ramp options in a loan equipment store

📍 Workshops Zone (past Kenilworth Bar)

Day One – Thursday 13th June, 11:30 – 12:15
Day Two -Friday 14th June, 10:45 – 11:30

The session addresses how a community equipment loan store team can optimise their core list of ramps to a rationalised range of options that are easy to specify, easy to use, and achieve long-term cost reductions through increased recycling and fewer specials. The session also looks at ways to achieve fast-track access solutions for clients who are waiting for (or don’t qualify for) the Disabled Facilities Grant process.

Reorganising a LA lead CES in a new Unitary Authority, including urban and very rural areas.

📍 Workshops Zone (past Kenilworth Bar)

Day One – Thursday 13th June, 16:15 – 17:00
Day Two – Friday 14th June, 14:30 – 15:15

Westmorland and Furness Council is newly formed Unitary Authority made up of half of what was Cumbria County Council. I used to run the Equipment Service for Cumbria. The challenge now is that we have to deliver using half the resource, but the extreme rural nature of the area has led us to look at some creative responses for delivering equipment there, quickly. I’d like to share these ideas and also discuss other authorities practice with the same challenges.

Tom Burden

Preventing pressure ulcers for People Living with Dementia (PLWD)

Emerging roles in assessing for equipment

📍 Workshops Zone (past Kenilworth Bar)

Day One – Thursday 13th June, 16:15 – 17:00
Day Two – Friday 14th June, 14:30 – 15:15

Growing demand for equipment, pressure on resources and the trend to remote assessment are leading to a gap in face-to-face assessments for equipment. There are signs of several new roles, this talk will share examples, including:

  • Installer / Assessor
  • Retailer / Assessor
  • Assessors in care settings
  • Reablement / Discharge to Assess

In this interactive workshop, we will summarise that there are a range of roles around the older and disabled person that are ideally placed to notice needs and identify equipment solutions. Once qualified to a national standard, local structures can be transformed to make use of these new roles.
