About The Conference
Our Social Care & Retirement Living Conference is the leading industry event for social care sector leaders. Last year’s event was focused on proposed social care reforms and the lessons learned during the global pandemic to create a new operating environment. The event also focused on sectoral opportunity, consumer choice and rapidly developing technology. The conference brings together key players from care homes for older people, adult specialist care, homecare and retirement living, making it a must-attend event for those working within Social Care.
Conference Agenda

An opportunity to network with other delegates and to meet our sponsors, exhibitor, and partners

Our Conference Chair will provide an introduction to the conference, to our sponsors and partners, and summarise the agenda

The vision for care: we are at a seminal point. The speakers will give their vision and you will be invited to agree or dispute.

There are many people looking for the next big thing in care - where will people want to be cared for, and how, and what will they want from the people providing the care and support. Investors, developers and newcomers are all putting their faith in investment in care. So where does Nostradamus say we should put our hopes and money in social care?

With the Government realising the importance of this market we have a panel of experts to discuss recent developments and the scope for retirement living.

The past 18 months have changed people’s perceptions so what is the role for residential care, domiciliary care and other forms of care? How do we ensure we recruit the right people to deliver the care that people want.

The panel will include residential care specialists, home care specialists and people showing how new forms of care can work.

Former Secretary of State for Health, Stephen Dorrell will lead a conversation with someone changing the way we think of care in the UK.

The conference has looked at what the future holds, but the next 12 months hold the key with funding decisions to make and new structures to embed – what are the markers for the next 12 months?

The panel will include workforce specialists, commissioners, investors and regulatory advisers.
