25 Apr 2024
Care Keynote Theatre

Skills for Care, the strategic workforce development body for England, is leading the development of a much-needed workforce strategy for adult social care to help the sector build the workforce it needs for the future. Skills for Care CEO Oonagh Smyth is co-chair of the strategy steering group, where representatives from across the sector have come together to develop the strategy. Oonagh will share her first-hand experience of how the strategy is transforming from a wish into reality, the difference it will make to adult social care – and how the sector can support it.

3 takeaways for the audience:
-    Why the sector needs this strategy
-    The work that’s been done so far and what’s still to come
-    How you can help make sure the strategy succeeds
