Day 1

Spotlight sessions

 As part of planning for this years NCASC the organisers have identified a number of “spotlight sessions”.  These take place over the three days and are denoted on the programme by the (S) and green text.  The idea of these sessions is that they will highlight examples of good and best practise in local authorities and present opportunities to learn from experience in dealing with a range of issues often faced by local authorities.

Join Sir Alan Wood, Founding Chair and the What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care team, who will be sharing updates on key projects in an informal session that will feature panel presentations and a Q&A for you to put your questions to the centre.

The event will include a demonstration of the centre’s new online ‘evidence store’ which will aim to make research about what works in children’s social care accessible.

The team will be sharing early insights from reviews and research including emerging evidence on how to safely reduce the need for children and young people to be in care. They will also be reflecting on how they have been engaging with the sector and their work with the 21 local partners throughout England to inform the development of the centre.

The presentations and Q&A will be followed by refreshments and the opportunity to meet the Centre’s team.

Speakers’ Corner

Speakers Corner

12:20pm NHS England

Better joint working at the health and social care interface is vital to improving outcomes, but our attempts so far have often failed to recognise the pivotal role patients themselves can play in integrating their own care.

NHS England is writing a vision paper for the NHS ten year plan, which describes how personalised care improves experience for people and the workforce, outcomes for people, and benefits the system.

This session will detail NHS England’s commitments for delivering personalised care for the next ten years; and will set out how it needs to work in partnership with local government to boost integrated personal commissioning to create holistic and personalised care around the needs and preferences of people who rely most on the ongoing support from health and care services.


1:15pm Easy to say, difficult to do: implementing a strengths based model of care in Cornwall

In this workshop, Cornwall will tell their story of how they are practically implementing a strengths based model of care – and the impact it is having on staff, service users and their financial position. They will share the lessons they have learnt and challenges they have faced when implementing the model, so that other local authorities can understand how they might practically get the most of the practice model in their own organisation.

Jonathan Price, Service Director, Transformation and Commissioning, Adult Social Care and Health, Cornwall County Council
Adam Walker, Director, Newton


1:40pm

Versus Arthritis – Adapted Homes, Empowered Lives: how can we improve access to aids and home adaptations?

Aids and adaptations in the home can be the difference between dependence and independence for someone with arthritis. So why do people find it so hard to access good quality home adaptations? Versus Arthritis have written a report that explores the impact home aids and adaptations have on the quality of life for people with musculoskeletal conditions; and explores their experiences in accessing aids and adaptations from local authorities. With the report to be published in the coming months, in this session we will look at some of the key findings that emerged, and explore together practical ways in which to improve access to life-changing aids and home adaptations.

Working Together with Parents Network – University of Bristol – The rights of families where parents have learning disabilities

Parents with learning disabilities are over-represented in care proceedings. Applying the key principles of the 2016 Good Practice Guidance on working with parents with a learning disability can avoid the need for proceedings for some of these families, as well as ensuring that their legal rights under the Human Rights Act and Equality Act are not breached
