Adult social care online at Better Connected Live 2016 May 25 in Birmingham

Posted on 9 March 2016 (Permalink)

The two-day Better Connected Live event combines a headline conference The Reinvention of Local Public Services with top speakers, best practice events, professional workshops, and demonstrations.

There will be a series of four half-day events for service managers, focused on digital delivery of frontline services, one each in the areas of waste and recycling; planning; libraries; and adult social care.

The adult social care event is being run in partnership with the ADASS Informatics Network, and will feature learning from Better Connected's testing of social care pages on council websites. There will also be a roundtable on care apps, which will be a curtain raiser for November's Care Apps Show (watch this space).
Digital inclusion will also feature, thanks to collaboration with the Tinder Foundation. The focus will be in digital skills for older people and carers, as well as broadband and mobile connectivity and access to tablets, mobile and other devices.
