Professionals remain critical to public service but recent demographic change, public sector reform and austerity policies have led to a sense of crisis.

This ESRC Festival of Social Science event aims to engage with public service professionals, policy-makers and the public in exploring the future of public services and professions’ ability to deliver them.

The event will comprise of a debate with leaders of selected public service professions who will summarise the challenges facing them in the next 3-5 years and their profession's responses to those challenges. A question time-style debate will follow.
