Secure Base

KFP 1: Secure Base 

Making sure social care workers have a secure base within which to operate is critical to organisation resilience, and is the first Key Foundational Principle.  This is when:

  • The organisation offers a sense of protection, belonging, safety and being valued and cared for.  It also fosters a culture of mutual support
  • The organisation provides a construction challenge for workers to explore fears and concerns relating to their role and area of practice and organisational change
  • This 'safe space' provides support, giving renewed energy and resources for improved practice.
