Professor Martin Green OBE, Care England chief executive, says: “Many people, including other professionals, fail to appreciate the value of the social care workforce, so we need to make them aware and adopt a more focused approach to recruitment, retention and training.

"We’re also interested in demonstrating the role of new technologies in developing new care services that are fit for the 21st century. This conference will further underline how a skilled and dedicated workforce sits at the centre of exemplary care”.
