Our deputy manager networks provide the opportunity for deputies to build supportive networks and share experiences and ideas with others.

I have found the deputy manager meetings very helpful and I have learnt so much about myself and how to develop in my role, I have now been promoted and find that things I have learnt I put into practice, and the support of the community we have is amazing. Thank you so much for all the help guidance and continued support

Supporting deputy managers to be the best they can be

The networks have been developed to help deputies meet the challenges they face in their day-to-day work and to support them to be the best they can be.  

Deputies will gain tools and techniques to develop their confidence, giving them the experience to start taking on greater responsibility at work in their deputy role.

The network and discussions will be relevant to deputies across different setting and service types. Each network meeting will be virtual and facilitated by a Skills for Care Locality Manager. It will focus on themes including:

  • Wellbeing and resilience
  • Self-confidence and personal effectiveness
  • Delegation with confidence and dignity
  • Communicating inside and out
  • Making sense of information.
