The programme for the biggest and best free event for social workers in your calendar has gone live today.
Community Care Live London 2015 offers sessions for adults’ and children’s social workers and managers on hot topics including the Care Act, Deprivation of Liberty safeguards, tackling radicalisation, child sexual exploitation and managing stress and absence.
Community Care Live is free for registered social workers and contributes to your continuing professional development
Our new programme layout is divided into three dedicated streams—adults’ social care, children’s services and management—to help you plan your day and ensure you never have to miss vital learning in your area of work.
Highlights include an in-depth training session on how to survive an Ofsted inspection and our brand new mock court where you can hone your legal skills and get top tips from barristers and judges.
For the first time, you can see a performance of Chelsea’s Choice, a hard-hitting play designed to raise awareness of tackling child sexual exploitation.
Or learn about a holistic approach to dementia from workers at Poppy Lodge, the centre featured in Channel 4’s Dementiaville, before brushing up on deprivation of liberty safeguards at our legal clinic.
Other highlights include Community Care’s very own book club, an innovative way to help your learning and development, as well as a career and learning zone with small groups run by experts to give you personalised advice and support.
One delegate, an assistant team manager in Dudley who attended Community Care Live last year, said it was “an excellent two days rejuvenating and reinvigorating with like-minded colleagues, reinforcing and revalidating my values in social work”.
A professional lead for social work in Portsmouth told us: “I got a great deal out of the two day event. I came back with lots of ideas to support my team and service users to promote practice.”
