The Festival of Health and Social Care 2021

Announcing the Festival of Health and Social Care, a one-day, virtual event focusing on digital innovation co-designed by councils and their health and care partners over the past 18 months to support a range of priority adult social care services. 

Featuring real life solutions developed via the Local Government Association’s Social Care Digital Innovation Accelerator, and covering key areas such as safeguarding, Discharge to Assess, learning disabilities, as well as the challenge of the incoming Liberty Protection Safeguards process. 

  • Hear from the councils involved, how the co-design process works and where the resulting solutions are making a difference to ASC services
  • Get involved in the afternoon session to discuss the wider landscape as to how the sector moves forward with CareTech across ASC to improve outcomes and personal independence
  • Drop into short innovation sessions highlighting six new digital ASC solutions – co-designed by over 30 councils – to see the solutions in action and ask questions
  • Discuss how council-led collaboration can drive more ASC innovation in 2022
