Governance Hub

We want your Trustees and Non-Executive Directors to join you at the conference!

We are delighted to launch a brand new Governance Hub in collaboration with Apetito.

  The not for profit sector needs expert and experienced governance and NCF wants to support your organisation in keeping your Trustees and Non-Executive Directors up to date and engaged.

  In order to do this, we have developed a unique Governance Hub, embedded within the main conference programme.

  Trustees and Non-Executive Directors will have an opportunity to hear about key issues tailored to their strategic needs during the specialist session.

  They will then have further opportunities within the main programme to attend tailored workshops and hear from keynote speakers.

  We do hope you take advantage of this new initiative, and in order to encourage you, we have introduced a special 20% discount for Trustees and Non-Executive Directors.


Rising star programme

Introducing our brand new programme for Registered Managers who have been in post this last year

Thanks to the sponsorship of Carterwood we are introducing a brand new Rising Stars programme.

  Launching at the conference we are offering ten free places to a Registered Manager within your organisation who you feel would benefit from the opportunity to engage with the conference programme, delegates and speakers.

  During the conference there will be a dedicated session for the Rising Stars, and they will be introduced to a programme of support that will run throughout the year.

  The full details of how to nominate someone for this programme, any organisational commitments, and the more informationapplication form can be found here.


Technology Exhibition

New exhibition for all delegates


We are delighted to announce a new annual partnership with IcareHealth who are sponsoring the Technology Exhibition

  During this year, NCF will be working with members on how best to harness the power of technology, data and development and how best to avoid the pitfalls.

  To that end we are holding a mini exhibition bringing together some of the latest developments from across the UK.

  In addition, on the main stage we will be continuing our focus on this key issue, with speakers and panellists from across the board.


Keynote speakers and workshops


Alongside these exciting events, the NCF conference will continue to be packed with expert speakers, cutting edge workshops and engaging panellists:

Andrea Sutcliffe

Chief Inspector

Adult Social Care

Margaret Willcox OBE 

Commissioning Director 

Adults & DASS

Professor Keith Willett

Networking Opportunities


We know that a key role for NCF is connecting up membership and the conference is an excellent opportunity for that. We have therefore put together a programme that will challenge and stimulate and left sufficient time in the programme to allow you to network and connect up with colleagues old and new.

 Really informative conference thank you. Great opportunity to network.

Good variety of workshops - very interesting - lots of innovation!
