Day 2

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.

Social Care: Towards the Future – Chair/Facilitator: Andrea Sutcliffe

Location: Charter 1

This year, for the first time, NCASC18 is being paralleled on 14th and 15th November 2018 by the Social Care Future gathering – a major, independently organised fringe event – It’s social care Jim, but not as we know it. The gathering is connecting up to 300 people – people who use social care services, their families, practitioners, support providers, commissioners and politicians, to share “glimpses” of the future from around the country.
Following two days of sharing and planning across a wide range of themes, representatives from this fringe event will join forces with ADASS and the LGA at NCASC to enable delegates of the two events to come together for a joint session. The aim is to grow a “coalition of the willing” to build on these glimpses that show how citizens, communities and statutory organisations all over the country are moving beyond traditional commissioning and provision, building serious partnerships and starting to see real results that use all local resources to embed better forms of support.
People who have been at the gathering will bring the messages and proposals emerging from It’s social care Jim, but not as we know it, to this joint session, to share with people at NCASC18, enabling them to both hear and contribute to the developing ideas. Participants will have an opportunity to select 2 to 3 topics, hear an outline of the outcomes and plans from the discussions for these topics and consider how they might want to engage with, or offer ideas, into a year of action to be taken in 2019. This is co-production in action – While we are surviving the social care present we must also be building the social care future.
