Continuing the conversation at NCASC 2018

November 12, 2018

We are delighted to be supporting this years well-established National Children and Adult Services Conference (NCASC) at Manchester Central 14-16 November. This conference is widely regarded as the most prestigious event in the calendar for elected members and senior managers in local authorities with responsibility for, or an interest in, the provision of effective services for children, young people and vulnerable adults. There will be a mix of keynote and ministerial addresses as well as significant plenary sessions by key players in the adult, children and education sectors.

Consensus will be hosting a stand in the exhibition area (C24), where we will be continuing the conversations on key themes, gathering feedback and stimulating on-going debates.

On display will be an animation panel containing thoughts gathered at the ADASS Spring Seminar, aimed at encouraging delegates to share their further thoughts and feedback on many of the key issues and priorities. After the conference, we will provide an update to all delegates who participate.

The Transforming Care Agenda, a key priority is one that we are passionate about and responding to. Visit our stand to learn how we support people with the most complex needs out of hospital. Tony shares his story, discussing medication, positive risk taking and making choices for himself.

We will have copies of our recently published Quality Report and our ADASS think piece ‘Choice is Key’ available.

This exciting exhibition sits at the heart of NCASC, Consensus and over 80 organisations, including government departments and executive agencies, the opportunity to showcase a wide variety of services and solutions to influential decision makers in local authorities, statutory providers and other colleagues across the health, social care and education sectors.

Partners in wider public services, the voluntary, community and private sectors who work in this area – from suppliers to providers – will also be in attendance offering a unique opportunity to draw together over 1000 delegates with a shared interest in the breadth of this policy area.

The event is aimed at all those from local and central government, voluntary organisations and the private sector with an interest in the provision of effective services for children, young people, their families and vulnerable adults, including health, social care and education.
