Event description

Description

Last year we ran a conference where over 100 people got together to talk through the problems with competition in social care. This year we want to bring together thinkers and do-ers who want to get beyond markets and create a sustainable approach to care and support.

Open to everyone this will be of particular interest to both providers and people who work in the planning and purchasing (commissioning and procurement) of social care.

Speakers include

  • Gary Wallace (Plymouth City Council) on Plymouth's approach to commissioning support for people with complex needs.
  • Lynn Mumford (The Mayday Trust) on becoming an organisation that helps the system work with, not against, people experiencing homelessness and other challenges.
  • Toby Lowe (University of Northumbria) on complexity, commissioning and effective accountability.

Got something you'd like to share?

We look forward to seeing you there!
