The SPARK tool is a self-reflective evaluation tool for practitioners working in community and social services, supporting them to develop a tailored self-care plan. It aims to prevent excessive stress and burnout by encouraging practitioners to reflect on distinct areas in their personal and professional lives.
Using evidence informed prompts, practitioners can assess, what, if any, changes are necessary to improve their welfare. This tool aims to build personal resilience in practitioners as an ongoing process. It provides a reminder that kindness and compassion towards ourselves and others are essential components in our personal and professional satisfaction.
