Community Care Live London 2018

25 - 26 September 2018 | Business Design Centre, Islington | London

Taking place from 25-26 September 2018 at the Business Design Centre in London, Community Care Live will provide two full days of CPD and essential learning, covering key topics across children and families’ social work, adult social care and social work management. So whatever your area of focus, interest or expertise, there’s sure to be something in our comprehensive programme which will make a visit to Community Care Live worthwhile.

This year, we will continue to provide free content in our seminar programme* covering the key issues across social work practice and management. Topics this year will include strengths-based practice, working with domestic abuse perpetrators, sexual abuse in the family and supporting people with learning disabilities who develop dementia. These practice and management seminars will continue to be free of charge for all registered social workers and local authority commissioners and workforce leads†. What’s more, our co-located exhibition will give you plenty of opportunity to meet and network with a number of relevant local authorities, service providers and recruiters.


Following feedback from delegates and increasing demand, we have introduced the opportunity to reserve your space at all of our legal learning sessions. There will be a small charge for each of the eight legal sessions.

* Free seminars are on a first come, first served basis, and are subject to maximum numbers. Places in the sessions cannot be guaranteed. The programme is subject to change.

Norfolk is a fantastic place to live and work offering a great Social Work / Life balance. We have the same potential for absorbing work as an inner city, but with an opportunity for you to have a different lifestyle.

In Children’s Services we are building on the positive findings of our recent Ofsted inspection. We are investing in Children’s Services over the next three years which will offer development opportunities as we transform services.

We offer great CPD and learning opportunities through our Norfolk Social Work Academy, an excellent relocation package with access to a lease car and colleagues who will welcome you with open arms and help you settle in.

We’re pioneering some changes to social care practice in Hampshire; radically changing the way we work and creating the right conditions to ensure social workers can work flexibly and are given the capacity to provide the level of support and attention that is required for them to make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and their families.

It’s an exciting time to join us as we’re investing £6.5 million in children’s social workers to help drive this change and enable Hampshire social workers to be more agile in their role, leaving them more fulfilled professionally and able to enjoy a good balance between work and home life.

We provide a safe and supportive working environment with positive team support and options to develop experience in a variety of casework. Plus all the practical support you need; including professional development and administrative support.

With opportunities available in both children’s and adult social care, now is the time to join Hampshire County Council, a leading authority at the forefront of radical innovation and improvement.

We would love to tell you more about our career and development opportunities – come and meet our team on stand 28.
