Future of Care Conference confirms ‘exciting’ line-up

Broadway Events has confirmed the speaker line-up for its Future of Care Conference at The King’s Fund in central London on 22 June.

ITV News anchor Sameena Ali Khan (pictured) will chair the highly-anticipated conference, while Duncan Baker, the Conservative MP for North Norfolk, will address delegates in a welcome speech in which he will advise why social care workers deserve parity of esteem.

The day will consist of seminars, panel debates and an exciting ‘fireside chat’. Amid the Covid crisis, the conference will tackle the past, present and future effects of the virus.

Speaking on how we can prepare for future pressures is Care Quality Commission chief inspector Kate Terroni, OECD economist Eileen Rocard and Dr. Laura Shallcross, who was the academic lead for University College London’s Vivaldi research programme on Covid-19.

Dr. Shallcross will be delving into the research and data of the pandemic to understand the burden and impact on care homes.

As always, speakers push the need for stronger support across the sector. Looking at the support required for both those who receive and deliver social care is MHA chief executive Sam Monaghan.

Phoenix Group chief executive Andy Briggs meanwhile will look to how the sector, government and society must adapt to an ageing society in the new normal.

Elsewhere, Alzheimer’s Society director of research and influencing Fiona Carragher will highlight the equal importance for maintaining the level of priority for dementia.

The conference will host two panel sessions on current concerns for social care - comprising of some of the most prominent names in the industry. First, ‘The Road to Recovery’, sponsored by Access Group will take place.

Later in the day, ‘A New Deal for Care Sector Workers, Recruitment and Retention’ will be hosted, focusing on Covid, Brexit, immigration and the domestic workforce.

Returning as a coveted speaker is Professor Martin Green OBE, chief executive of Care England, who will be speaking on the way forward for adult social care.

In addition, Social Care Institute for Excellence chief executive Kathryn Smith will discuss the way forward, focusing on how a strengths-based approach can inspire improvement.

Ending the conference is a ‘fireside chat’ between Tricia Pereira, director of operations at Skills for Care and Clenton Farquharson MBE, director at Community Navigator Services CIC.

Pereira and Farquharson will set to challenge perspective as they deliberate on how we can build a better future for all workers within the care sector.
