Specialist Interest Groups (SIGs)

Our SIGs are made up of experienced employees who have an interest and expertise in specialist areas such as: autism, inclusion, employment, innovation, dementia pathways, and children and transitions. We have a number of well-established and successful SIGs across the organisation that enhance the support we provide. SIGs play an important role in ensuring that innovative support models and opportunities are available to everyone who uses our services.

The groups come together to share research and best practice, create internal and external networks and look at the best ways we can support people. Their expertise is highly valuable to all of us at Brandon Trust and provides a ‘hub’ for employees to connect with in order to develop knowledge in areas of particular interest. They motivate and inspire teams at a local level, inform strategic direction for the organisation and ensure that creative and bespoke solutions are available to the people we support.

Experienced practitioners

Our experienced practitioners are individuals who have specialist knowledge and experience in their particular area of practice, a passion for seeking improvements in these areas and the ability to develop others.

They facilitate and deliver information, advice, guidance and training to other employees, helping to ensure that specialist knowledge is maintained and shared across the organisation.

As an experienced practitioner, you’ll be fully supported by our learning and development team to continuously enhance your knowledge of current best practice in order to ensure that we’re offering the best possible support in your area of specialism.
