Creating tomorrow's care today
National Social Services Conference 2013, June 27th - 28th, Venue Cymru, Llandudno
ADSS Cymru and the WLGA are pleased to host this year’s National Social Services Conference 2013 at Venue Cymru, Llandudno.
This high level, annual event has come to be highly regarded as a major opportunity to understand the direction of travel for social care in Wales and to engage with the key stakeholders. As in previous years, this conference will aim to challenge our thinking, stimulate debate and encourage the development of sound practice across all sectors.
The conference comes at a time when all aspects of the world in which we live and work are subject to transformational change. The challenges posed by changing demographics, increased public expectations, unprecedented financial constraint and the likelihood of new legislative imperatives come together to pose significant questions about how we face the future.
The social care services we commission and deliver have the potential to transform the lives of our citizens but these services are themselves subject to dramatic change as we explore the potential for shared or integrated arrangements across local authorities and with the NHS. There are changing expectations about the workforce in terms of training, qualifications and the use of professional judgement. Service providers from all sectors are concerned about how they should respond to new demands and opportunities.
This conference will enable delegates to look at what all these factors mean for leadership, management and the potential partnerships that will develop across all sectors of the social care economy.
Our 2012 conference attracted more than 300 high level participants and this year’s conference will do the same, providing great opportunities for engaging debate and innovative learning, as well as excellent networking opportunities.
As partners, we are committed to making this event a high class conference, relevant to all those involved in the social care sector. The conference and its plenary, workshop and exhibition events reflect the fullest possible range of interests brought by delegates from an equally wide range of backgrounds.
We look forward to welcoming you to Conference.
