The well-established National Children and Adult Services Conference (NCASC) is widely regarded as the most prestigious event in the calendar for elected members and senior managers in local authorities with responsibility for, or an interest in, the provision of effective services for children, young people and vulnerable adults.

This event is vital to councillors, directors, senior officers, directors of public health, policy makers and service managers, indeed any individual or organisation with responsibilities for children and adults in the statutory, voluntary and private sector. The Conference is the annual opportunity for those with an interest in social care, children’s services, education, health and related fields to meet.

NCASC 2018 will be held 14-16 November 2018 at Manchester Central. There will be a mix of keynote and ministerial addresses as well as significant plenary sessions by key players in the adult, children and education sectors.
