Thanks to the sponsorship of Carterwood and Apetito - NCF Annual Partners - we are able to offer our second Rising Stars programme.

This programme provides an opportunity for those shining lights in your organisation to hear first-hand about key policy developments, best practice innovations and challenges facing the strategic thinkers within the sector.

The Rising Stars and their mentors attended the NCF UK Care Conference on the 17th and 18th April 2018 benefiting from the opportunity to engage with the conference programme, delegates and speakers. During the conference there was a dedicated 3 course lunch provided by Apetito for the Rising Stars and their mentors and who were also joined by the winning teams from the Care Innovation Challenge
