We are in the final throes of preparation for The Ageing in Common conference
next week, and are looking forward to welcoming many members to take part in what we envisage will be a completely unique event in the UK care sector. Over the 16th to the 18th April 2018
we will be welcoming delegates from across the globe to hear about innovation, research, new models, technological changes, political reform, Human Rights, best practice, community action, intergenerational working, home care, nursing provision, workforce, leadership, global responses to dementia, learning disability and older people, LGBT rights and so much more.
We will be joined by delegates and speakers from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, India, Tanzania, Ghana, Uganda, Nigeria, Malawi, South Africa, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Myanmar, Kenya, Nairobi and Cameroon, Canada and the USA. Many delegates have been supported by bursary payments, and we are very grateful to QCS
who have provided significant support to bring Commonwealth delegates to the event, plus other places which have been supported by Age International and Care England.
The Ageing in Common conference will share new research into Ageing across the Commonwealth presented by the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing. Meet the winners of the Care Innovation
Challenge, receive a private showing of the specially commissioned opera for care homes and hear from the fantastic Occasional Orchestra, specialists in music therapy for people living with dementia.
Alongside this we will be welcoming our second cohort of Rising Stars
supported by Carterwood
, host the inaugural Intergenerational Expert Reference group, facilitate a truly global leadership summit including representatives from the Global Ageing Network and bring together for the first time speakers from across the UK to discuss the reform of adult social care.
A final few day delegate spaces remain – so do contact the NCF office
for more details. This is such an exciting opportunity to connect with care providers across the globe, and not have to travel any further than Reading for the pleasure!
