The Managers Conference 2024

The Managers Conference 2024

Managers are fundamental to the delivery of outstanding care. The role is complex with rapidly changing challenges and requires increased resilience.

Hosted by NCF and Skills for Care and in collaboration with ARC England, this networking evening with overnight accommodation and full day conference will champion and support the crucial role of managers in adult social care. It will bring together managers from across the country to share knowledge, ask questions and network with colleagues.

The programme includes a mix of conference sessions and practical workshop options, as well as panel discussions. Topics include team working, diversity and inclusion, delivering outstanding care and digital social care.

It’s an opportunity to share, learn and find solutions and answers to the challenges you face on a daily basis, and help you and your teams provide the highest quality care.

Feedback from previous delegates

"It was a great event and the opportunity to network with peers and discuss key issues such as recruitment, person centred approaches and sector wide policies were very helpful."

"It’s been amazing, being with like-minded individuals who share the same passion and love for our roles."

"I believe the whole conference including the two workshops that I attended was very helpful and informative."

"It is always refreshing, stimulating, challenging and encouraging to hear incredible speakers talk about their experiences, and the roles they and all of us play within the wider systems and how we can all do more, better and even adjust our approaches to get improved outcomes for the people and communities we support. I find conferences like these totally priceless and incredibly valuable."

"Although that was my first manager’s conference experience, I learnt a lot, met people from different health and social care sectors who made me feel comfortable and welcomed."
