APSE Cemeteries and Crematoria Seminar 2018
Friday 16 November, Preston Marriott Hotel
Bereavement Services are under increasing pressures to become self-sustaining commercial ventures. The service is are also facing changing cultural requirements as well as being held responsible for caring for the environments in which their services work. Added to this catalogue of responsibilities is the need to meet a long list of new and current legislative demands.
Whilst these challenges have to be met, the heart of the service is still to ensure it considers its customers’ needs at the most vulnerable time in their lives.
In a time of austerity local authorities continue to find their budgets shrinking and as such managers and staff alike are having to look for ways to compensate against these losses, either through service efficiencies, generating new sources of income, or innovative service delivery methodologies.
Service delivery is therefore having to change. APSE recognises this need, and through the provision of this seminar and its wider networking services can help managers hear examples of how these changes can be brought about.
The aim of the seminar is to highlight best practice and innovation, which together will prove invaluable to the development of future Bereavement Services.
Delegates will learn about:
It is hoped delegates will take away ideas and experiences which will help services become more sustainable and ready to meet future opportunities and challenges.
The conference is planned to allow time for debate and questions as well as giving delegates the chance to meet exhibitors of products and services which will help Bereavement Managers in delivering higher quality services.
