State of Caring Conference 2020

Building a Better Future for Carers

Wednesday 21 October 2020

About the conference

This year’s conference will look and feel different as we go online to run our first ever digital State of Caring conference. Chaired by David Brindle, Public Services Editor of The Guardian, the day will be filled with a mixture of keynote sessions and facilitated workshops as well as networking opportunities, maintaining all the elements of the conference that delegates have valued. Sessions will be recorded and will be made available to delegates after the conference.

Whether you are a commissioner, practitioner or service provider, this conference is for you.

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 to ensure that delegates leave with an enhanced knowledge of best practice and forthcoming policy across the broad and changed landscape of supporting carers.

Workshops will be delivered on key themes such as the NHS supporting carers, how workplace issues for carers have changed and how employers are responding, what innovation is here to stay as a result of the pandemic, and new models of supporting carers. There will also be strong evidence of the effectiveness of carers’ passports in the workplace, and throughout all sessions, we will be looking at how digital has increased opportunities for carers and changed the way services and support are delivered.
