The APSE Social Care Forum is a vehicle for the sharing of good practise and debating service delivery ideas to support APSE member councils in ensuring effective care.
The day will include comment and case studies exploring innovative ways through which local authorities are supporting residents to live independently at home, investing in community capacity to meet local care needs and avoiding hospital admissions as well as future options for Local Government Finance. The day will also include facilitated discussion to highlight the nature of support and advocacy that would be valued on behalf of the APSE membership to support the delivery of social care services.
The forum is free for both elected members and officers from APSE member councils to attend and will include a hot and cold buffet lunch, tea, coffee and refreshments.
