Task 1B The care workers support the service users in bambino's nursery to maintain their rights. There is a number of ways in which this can be done such as giving up to date info, using effective communication, speaking on behalf of service users who are unable to do so for themselves, seeking support, providing information on complaints procedure and challenging discriminatory behaviour. Effective communication Communication is vital as, if the children don't understand what is being said to them they will be unable to respond or process any information that is given, or the reply given may be irrelevant. Care workers must, speak clearly and listen carefully when orally communicating with children who may become confused or maybe even angry.
