There are a number of Liverpool City Region initiatives within the area of assisted living. There is a real opportunity for partnership working to harness this innovation for the benefit of the local economy. This event will highlight the activity already taking place and will demonstrate the opportunities for engagement.
This event is focused on opportunities and next steps. In Liverpool, there have been a number of Hack Days, unConferences, Roundtables and launch events where people have had a chance to engage with Mi various partners, debate the issues and come up with challenging and innovative approaches. There will be many more in the future. This is something different. It is a pause for breath, a chance to sum up what we have learnt so far and to announce what we are going to do next.
We have speakers from Liverpool LEP, the NHS, Liverpool City Council, all involved in initiatives to transform Social Care and Public Health in Liverpool. There will be representatives of the private sector along to talk about how they’ve been engaged as part of this. Finally we will have representatives of organisations willing to fund Entrepreneurship in this sector.
