Ageing well Programme's design event: Developing a Community of Practice

The Kia Oval, London, SE11 5SS

10:00am - 16:00pm

If you are a social care provider and work with the NHS, you may find the development of new “Communities of Practice” helpful for your care service. These are groups of people who share a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better.

As home care providers and people who work in a care home setting you will be important in designing these Communities of Practice, to help support people safely at home or in their residential care setting with the support they need.

If you have experience in providing home care, or working in a care home setting and regularly work with the NHS we’d love for you to join us:
