The next Provider Engagement Network conference has the title: “Serving everyone: meeting diverse needs in changing times” and will be an opportunity for providers of adult social care to maximise business opportunities, celebrate success and share good practice based on the lived experiences of people from a wide range of backgrounds.
The event will be held near Exeter and it will start with registration from 9:15am and it will run through until 2pm with lunch included. Details are on the agenda.
There will be four workshops to choose from:
1. Technology its role in supporting independence: are we maximising opportunities to use technology in ways which empower people?
2. Market opportunities and changing demography: are providers ready to respond to the demands made by our increasingly diverse society?
3. Involving service users in provision: how much say are we giving people who use services in their design and delivery?
4. Human rights and the challenges facing social care provision: how aware are service users of their rights and how can providers balance individual rights against the constraints of collective provision?
The event will also feature a dialogue with the Devon County Council portfolio-holder for Adult Care and Health, Cllr Andrew Leadbetter, technology demonstrations and performances by a mixed-ability music group, along with a unique networking ability in a marketplace representing a range of stimulating perspectives.
