State of Caring 2021 - Virtual Conference

Carers: Recovery, Rebuilding and Recognition – learning from the pandemic

Thursday 4 November 2021

We are excited to welcome everyone to this year’s conference and we have a great line up of speakers including some key social health and care leaders who have been at the heart of the response to COVID-19. See the conference programme.

Delegates can attend breakout sessions on:

  • Health and social care: lessons learnt from COVID-19
  • Support for working carers – where next?
  • Digital Data & Innovation
  • Health and social care reform


About the conference

Building on the success of last year’s first ever online State of Caring conference, this year’s event will look back on the last 18 months taking stock of the challenges faced by carers, but also the new learning, opportunities and ways of working that developed during the pandemic.

With unprecedented joint working between health, social care, carers organisations and other local agencies, the conference will look at practice-based success in carer recognition and identification, data sharing, use of technology and personalising care.

Whether you are a commissioner, practitioner or service provider, this conference will ensure you are being kept up to date with the latest practice and policy as well as look at future trends in supporting carers.

Programme

There has never been a more important time to keep up to speed with policy and practice. With so many practice and life changes as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, this year we will be focussing on what has been learned during the pandemic.

Chaired by David Brindle, Journalist and commentator and former Society Guardian Editor, the day will be filled with a mixture of keynote sessions and facilitated workshops. We will be taking stock of new employer practices supporting carers in the workplace, as well as continuing our strong theme of digital support for carers. The event will also present an analysis of the forthcoming NHS reform and the Health and Social Care Bill and what it might mean for carers support, as well as scanning the horizon for future policy and practice developments for carers, including social care reform.
