Social care professionals must book their Early Bird ticket for the Future of Care Conference by next week, to avoid missing out, organisers have said.
The discounted rate for the event, which will make a live return at the King’s Fund in London on June 22, will expire on May 25.
ITV’s anchor Sameena Ali Khan is set to chair the conference, which will consist of seminars, panel debates and a fireside chat.
Duncan Baker, the Conservative MP for North Norfolk, will first be addressing the delegates in a short welcome speech, where he will advise why social care workers deserve parity of esteem.
Following the COVID-19 crisis, the conference sets to tackle the past, present and future effects of the virus.
Speaking on how the sector can prepare for future pressures is Kate Terroni, chief inspector at the Care Quality Commission; Eileen Rocard, Junior Economist at OECD; and Dr. Laura Shallcross, who was the academic lead for the VIVALDI research programme for COVID-19.
Sam Monaghan, CEO of Methodist Homes, will discuss the support required for both those who receive and deliver social care, while Andy Briggs, group chief executive at The Phoenix Group, will look to how the sector, government and society must adapt to an ageing society in the new normal.
Highlighting the equal importance for maintaining the level of priority for Dementia is Fiona Carragher, director of Research and Influencing at Alzheimer’s Society.
The conference will host two panel sessions on current concerns for social care. First, ‘The Road to Recovery’, sponsored by the Access Group will take place. Later in the day, ‘A New Deal for Care Sector Workers, Recruitment and Retention’ will be hosted, focusing on Brexit, COVID-19, immigration and the domestic workforce.
Returning as a coveted speaker is Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive at Care England, will discuss the way forward for adult social care. Kathryn Smith will also discuss the way forward, focusing on how a strengths based approach can inspire improvement.
Ending the conference is the fireside chat between Tricia Pereira, director of Operations at Skills for Care and Clenton Farquharson MBE, Director at Community Navigator Services CIC. Tricia and Clenton will set to challenge perspective as they deliberate on how we can build a better future for all workers within the care sector.
