NCF Rising Stars Programme – applications now open

6 February 2018

Thanks to the sponsorship of NCF Annual Partners Carterwood we are able to offer the NCF Rising Stars programme for a second year.

“At the National Care Forum (NCF), we know that good leadership is key to the success of our sector… However, we also know that the future is only a day away, and to that end, we cannot rest on our laurels. The not-for-profit sector needs to focus on building a new set of leaders who can shape and transform the future provision of care in the UK. With this challenge in mind, at NCF we decided to take some action and begin the important process of investing in our leaders of the future – and so the Rising Stars programme was born.” Blog by Vic Rayner

The programme:
is open to Registered Managers who have taken up their post in the last year within NCF member organisations*
provides an opportunity to develop the next generation of leaders within the sector
draws on the leading lights throughout the membership who offer inspiration, expertise and innovation
Send your completed applications to by 28th February 2018

As part of the programme we are offering ten free places to attend the NCF UK Care Conference on the 17th and 18th April 2018 to the successful candidates, registered managers* who you feel would benefit from the opportunity to engage with the conference programme, delegates and speakers. The conference provides those shining lights in your organisation to be to hear first-hand about key policy developments, best practice innovations and challenges facing the strategic thinkers within the sector. During the conference there will be dedicated session for the Rising Stars, and they will be introduced to a programme of support that will run through the year.
