Community Care Live 2019 took place on 15-16 October. Thanks to all our sponsors, hosts, exhibitors, speakers and delegates for making the event such a success. You can access information on the event on this website.
Delegates who attended the event will shortly receive an email with a short feedback form, and access to all slides for the free seminars (where this has been agreed with speakers). Anyone who attended a legal learning seminar will get access to the slides for that session where agreed with the speaker.
We look forward to seeing you again next year at Community Care Live, on 13-14 October, 2020.
Essex County Council is an award winning local authority and we are proud to have had winners at the national Social Worker of the Year Awards in 2014, 2016, 2017 and are proud to have won ‘Best Social Work Employer’ in 2018.
Being one of the most populated counties in the UK, with communities as diverse as its geography, Essex can become the next step in your career whether you are looking for a role in adult social care or children and families.
Social work is a demanding, complex and ultimately fulfilling role. We fully recognise the importance of providing you with the tools and quality time to undertake direct relationship-based social work, to make real positive differences to the lives of our residents.
We are achieving this by supporting our social workers to deliver fantastic social work through our extensive CPD offer, which is expertly delivered by our BASW accredited Essex Social Care Academy. This includes regular training workshops, inspirational keynote speakers and engagement events, making Essex the best place to develop your knowledge and career as a valued social worker.
We recognise and celebrate inspiring and exceptional social work and can offer the variety where you can be challenged and supported, and really progress your career.
We see the workplace as an environment where people can be themselves, perform to the best of their ability and achieve their potential to deliver services to our residents.
Social Work is challenging, and we recognise that to achieve excellent outcomes, our people need to feel supported and recognised. Our Social Workers change lives. From supporting children and families from the very start through to enabling our residents to live independently in later life, we support them in every step.
If you are passionate about making a difference, look at the exciting opportunities we have in Adults’ and Children’s Services.
