As part of the VCSE Review consultation process, we have arranged for people who are interested in hearing from Alex Fox, the VCSE Review Chair and CEO of Shared Lives Plus, to attend the ACEVO Autumn Health and Social Care Conference in Leeds, for free.
This short day conference on the 21 October is a perfect opportunity to consider what this parliament has in store for third sector organisations working in health and care and the conference will focus on the critical role of the third sector in helping to drive changes across the health economy. In this context, Alex Fox will be providing an update on the VCSE Review consultation and will be seeking feedback from attendees.
However, there is a great line up of other speakers. The Keynote speaker is the Rt Hon Norman Lamb, former Minister of State for Care. Chair of the day is Kate Welch, CEO of Social Enterprise Acumen CIC and other confirmed speakers include Ruth Kettle, CEO of Community Links.
Our panel discussion – Care at all costs? – is an opportunity to debate sustainability challenges facing the care sector. Panellists include Robin Arbuthnot, Director of HR at Praxis Care, Lesley Dixon, CEO of PSS, Laura Gardiner, Senior Research and Policy Analyst at Resolution Foundation and Liz Westbury, CEO of Leeds Jewish Welfare Board.
The day will also include workshops from New Economy on ‘Cost Benefit Analysis – Understanding value for money of your interventions’ and ACEVO Solutions together with Hempsons on ‘The Five Year Forward View – How to influence and engage with emerging care models’.
This event is FREE to attend for third sector organisations, but spaces are limited. To book your place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote VCSE REVIEW in your email subject line.
