We are delighted to announce that NCASC 2020 will take place online between 4 – 6 November.  This will be the first ever virtual NCASC – although sadly we cannot come together in person, we are embracing our new ways of working and bringing to you a range of virtual webinars delivered by prominent figures in the adult, children and education sectors, including ministers. As usual, the event will provide excellent opportunities to learn and share best practice with colleagues across central and local government.

2020 has brought unprecedented change and challenges across the globe – as always local government has risen to the challenges it has faced and has ensured that those who use the services we provide, including the most vulnerable in our society, continue to receive the support they deserve.

A series of webinars will take place over the 3 days providing a mixture of keynote, sub-plenary and panel sessions, all of which you can enjoy  from the comfort of your desk – wherever that is currently situated. We hope as a result of the conference being online that more colleagues than ever will be able to come together to share and learn with us.

Delegate places cost just £100+VAT per person for the entire event. This flat fee gives delegates access to all sessions across all 3 days.

Thank you for your continued interest in, and support of, the National Children and Adult Services Conference.
