State of Caring Conference 2018

Carers at the heart of health and care

Thursday 12 July 2018 9.30am - 4.30pm
Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, London, WC1



About the conference

2018 will continue to be a year of change in which the Government has committed to publishing a Green Paper on Social Care and a Carers Action Plan to replace the Carers Strategy.

Several issues continue to dominate the agenda for carers – health and wellbeing, combining work and care, the use of technology to support carers – as well as the delivery of services across a changing health and social care landscape.

Carers UK’s State of Caring 2018 conference will see key national and local leaders sharing their vision, knowledge and best practice to ensure that we make the most of these opportunities.

Key points of the conference:

  • Hear the latest on the Green Paper on Social Care and the Carers Action Plan
  • Hear how the new focus on workforce issues can help support carers in and into work
  • Find out the latest from NHS England on their work to support carers locally
  • Review new technology to support caring – meet the robots!
  • Network with others to exchange good practice

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

 Affiliate members of Carers UK will have a further networking opportunity at the Affiliates early evening reception (4.30-6pm).

Programme

We’ll be looking at some of the latest research and evidence across all of the sessions to help demonstrate the value and need for supporting carers in different ways – using practical examples of local and national activity where things have worked well. We’ll be reflecting the trends and practice across the sector to look at shared learning, new developments and opportunities in what continues to be a tight economic environment.
