There are a number of projects that can offer support to you as leaders in health and social care.

Project Lift is a new approach to recruit, retain, develop and manage talent within Health and Social Care in Scotland to ensure all leaders can be the very best and most able they can be and reach their potential from entry roles through to boardrooms. Its focus is to embed a consistent and understood approach to leadership across Health and Social Care in Scotland, explicitly linked to the ethos of Compassionate and Collective Leadership, collaborative working and the underlying values and principles of the National Performance Framework and Health and Social Care in Scotland.
Project Lift is about offering people opportunities, tailored to their individual needs, and supporting the evolution of communities; communities of leaders at all levels.
There are 4 key strands to the approach: values based recruitment; performance appraisal; talent management; and leadership development.
Project Lift was set up to enable managers and leaders right across social care to be the best versions of themselves.
