Why Take Part?

Whilst we may not be able to welcome you to a physical event, Community Care Virtually Live can still offer you access to a virtual expo, as well as a comprehensive FREE seminar programme, offering more than 40 invaluable sessions. We will also continue to host legal learning seminars which will provide the latest guidance and advice from the country’s leading experts.*

Community Care Virtually Live will continue to provide essential learning and training to all registered social workers and local authority directors, commissioners and workforce leads. The two-day programme will allow you to learn from your peers and sector thought leaders, just as before, and will still provide an opportunity to meet and network with a range of local authorities, recruiters, learning organisations and service providers, as well as fellow delegates and visitors to the event - the only difference will be that you are doing it through our virtual event platform.
