Social care leaders come together in an online round table discussion that’s not to be missed.
Participants will be discussing the need to drive better awareness, understanding, knowledge and best in class practice for disabled people, both as people the sector supports and as employees in our teams.
When 22% of people in the UK have a disability and the social care sector faces increasing workforce pressure, recruiting and supporting disabled colleagues is more important than ever.
Purple, the cross-sector Championing Social Care initiative and CareTech Foundation will come together to discuss how to improve the experiences of disabled people in social care, and you can join them too on Zoom on Thursday, 25th November 2021 11:00 – 12:00.
