Event description

Description

Educate. Collaborate. Innovate.

One Stop Social are hosting our first convention for social work and care professionals in London! After our first Work and Care Together convention in Manchester in June 2018, we're now heading to the capital to further support practitioners and facilitate professional development within the sector. This convention is focussing on the importance of high quality education within our profession, as well as the benefits that come from collaborating with different services.

The event will have 2 parts to it: an exhibition where you can network with some of the top front-line services, and a series of training sessions where you can receive a certificate of attendance to count towards your Continuous Professional Development.

We're pleased to announce that one of our Sponsors, Care Sourcer, will be hosting a mini "afterparty" at the end of the convention at the Park Plaza Riverbank! So stick around for a free drink and a few laughs with your social work community!

Remember to use our hashtag #WorkCareTogether to be featured on our social media pages!


Training Workshops & Presentations

There will be 5 rooms with training sessions throughout the day, to help support your development within social work and care. Every workshop is free to attend, and you'll be able to book onto your chosen session at the One Stop Social stand on the day.

Tickets

All tickets are free, you just need a General Admission one to guarantee your entry to the event. Please make check-in quicker and easier by booking one in advance, but don't worry, you can get one at the door!

This is an entirely FREE event, but we're doing things a little differently when it comes to booking onto our training workshops this time around. After the enormous success of these sessions in Manchester, we've increased the number of rooms to 5 so we'll be running 24 workshops throughout the day. If you'd like to attend any of these sessions, you'll need to reserve a General Admission ticket here (or in person on the day!) and then come to the One Stop Social stand at the exhibition and book on there!

Essentially:

  1. Book 1 General Admission Ticket
  2. Come to Work and Care Together
  3. Find the One Stop Social stand
  4. Tell our team which session(s) you want to attend
  5. Attend that workshop!


(PS: you don't need multiple tickets to book onto lots of different workshops, just one per person to get into the whole event!)


See you all in London!! ---- The One Stop Social Team
