This year’s National Children and Adult Services Conference will take place as a three-day virtual conference from Wednesday 24 November to Friday 26 November 2021.

The LGA, ADASS and ADCS have taken the decision to run NCAS Conference 2021 virtually, given the uncertainty around COVID-19 and the time needed to plan such a large-scale event. Please hold the date in your diaries and we will share more information soon.

The National Children and Adult Services Conference is a vital annual event for councillors, directors, senior officers, directors of public health, policy makers and service managers, and any individuals or organisations with responsibilities for children and adults services 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 network with peers and hear the very latest thinking on key policy and improvement agendas.

Our Community

Partners in wider public services, the voluntary, community and private sectors who work in this area – from suppliers to providers – will also be in attendance offering a unique opportunity to draw together over 1000 delegates with a shared interest in the breadth of this policy area.
