To tackle the challenges of an ageing population, the government’s green paper aims to set out the plans to reform the care and support system and improve provision for older people. This event will discuss the contents of the government’s green paper through a series of presentations delivered by expert speakers, a debate on funding with highly informed panellists and the sharing of examples of best practice. Delegates will gain greater clarity as to the government’s ambitions for the future of social care and have the opportunity to discuss how these plans will impact on people’s lives.
The Looked After Children: Improving Life Chances conference will offer delegates the opportunity to be fully briefed on the current situation within the care system and gain an update on the latest developments in terms of policy and funding. The conference will explore all the issues and discuss the way forward to ensure that the life chances of a child or young person in care are not diminished because of the circumstances in which they find themselves.
