State of Caring conference 2022
A better future: meeting the challenges of carers

Thursday 10 November 2022


About the conference

Building on the success of our two online State of Caring conferences, this year Carers UK will bring together key speakers and sector leaders who will take stock of the challenges faced by carers, but also the new learning, opportunities, trends and ways of working that are currently in place and will emerge in the near future.

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

For more details please contact:



The pressures on carers have never been greater but there are new opportunities to build support for carers.

The State of Caring conference 2022 this year will look at policy and practice including:

  • social care delivery including assessments and breaks
  • social care and health innovation
  • the costs of care and funding reforms
  • health and care integration
  • the new Integrated Care Boards, Partnerships and Health and Care Act provisions
  • new trends in the workplace
  • new developments in equalities.

Through a mixed format 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.
