The clock is ticking down on Community Care Live London 2016, the UK’s biggest free-to-attend social work event – so make sure you register your place.
Following the success of Community Care Live Birmingham, which saw more than 2,600 practitioners from 175 local authorities descend on the West Midlands, we’re back in the capital on 27 and 28 September to get to grips with all the key topics affecting the sector.
Our popular mock court returns to help you sharpen your legal expertise in a hands-on environment; a career and learning zone also offers the opportunity to benefit from personalised support and advice from experts.
Dealing with the ‘toxic trio’
Talks on offer for children and families social workers include a look at making meaningful assessments and interventions where the ‘toxic trio’ of mental ill health, substance misuse and domestic violence are involved, and an update on multi-agency tackling of child trafficking.
Adult social workers, meanwhile, can explore family group conferencing for adults, get a carer’s perspective on living with dementia, and hear about mate crime and the sexual exploitation of people with learning disabilities.
A series of sessions are also geared towards senior managers. These include considering how to manage legal risks in adult social care, and how to retain social work staff and develop their resilience.
The two-day event is free for registered social workers and local authority commissioners and directors.
