3rd May 2018 – Coin Street, Bankside
“We must do things differently if we are to create a sustainable and vibrant care market”. This was the conclusion drawn by North West ADASS in their recent report into market sustainability. With this challenge extending well beyond the North West, TLAP’s next forum event will focus on community business models and the difference they can make, as well as the role of digital technologies.
Care Markets and Quality Forum, is taking place on Thursday 3 May at Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre 108 Stamford Street, London SE1 9NH. The provisional programme for the day is attached for information, it includes:
- the work that Power for Change is supporting to develop and grow the role of community businesses in the provision of care and support. The framework has relevance beyond community businesses with the potential to assist the response to the challenge of improving the quality, choice and diversity in the care and support market
- the new Integrated Commissioning for Better Outcomes framework
- digital technology and how it’s being used in some care and support environments
- the key finding of the Skills for Care survey into the digital capabilities of the social care workforce
