HSMC are hosting a one-day workshop on 7 April 2014 which will explore scope to develop more 'assets-based' approaches to adult social care, building on people's aspirations and strengths. With a mix of speakers from local authorities, third sector partners and academia, the event will explore ways in which adult social care could seek to draw more fully on existing social capital and community resources. With plenty of time for informal interaction, networking and discussion, the workshop builds on a recent national policy paper ('Turning the welfare state upside down?') commissioned by Birmingham City Council to examine scope for new approaches to the delivery of adult social care.

This seminar will be of interest to front-line staff, managers and policy makers in adult social care, directors of public health and all those involved in commissioning and delivering adult social care (whether in the public, private or voluntary sector).

Please go to our events page for more information and how to book.
