The event will focus on two main perspectives around endings:
Closing down time-limited support services
Focusing on the required preparation for the end of time-limited services and projects, this session will explore practical tips and recommendations to support service users through the process of service closure more effectively. This will include a presentation by CFE Research of the findings from their recent Fulfilling Lives national evaluation report “Closing down beneficiary support projects”.
Psychologically informed endings
This session will focus on the ending of relationships between service users and staff. It will draw on the experiences of service users, as well as literature from psychology and social work. It will consider different views of endings, why and how endings can impact on both parties, and how to have a psychologically-informed ending. The session will include interactive exercises and space for group discussion.
