CQC’s Andrea Sutcliffe will be keynote speaker
Adult social care providers from across Surrey and Sussex will be descending on Brighton Racecourse to attend the Surrey and Sussex Social Care Showcase – the region’s biggest free business and training event for the care sector. (Wednesday 14 March)
Reflecting the topical Showcase theme of Making Connections in Social Care, the seminar programme will be headed by keynote speaker Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care at the Care Quality Commission. Other speakers from the sector include Margaret Willcox, President of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS); Avnish Goyal, Chair of Care England; Brian Morton from the Royal College of Nursing and Vic Rayner from the National Care Forum.
Erica Lockhart, Chief Executive of Surrey Care Association and one of the Showcase organisers said: “The shortages of nursing and care staff and pressure on council finances are some of the biggest challenges facing local care providers today. We all need to ensure a sustainable long term future for the sector and our Care Showcase seminars and networking opportunities will keep providers abreast of developments to help them face up to the challenges ahead. With Andrea Sutcliffe and our other high-profile seminar speakers, this really is an event that local care providers cannot afford to miss.”
Now in its twelfth year, Showcase attracts over 700 visitors every year. The event’s extensive exhibition area also offers a ‘one stop shop’ for products and services from over 50 training providers, IT companies, legal and business advisors, care associations and suppliers to the care industry.
The Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex Mr Peter Field will officially open the Showcase which is free of charge for social care providers from Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove.*
The Surrey and Sussex Social Care Showcase is supported by Surrey Care Association, East Sussex County Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and West Sussex County Council. The Showcase 2018 media partner is Care Management Matters magazine.
