12Feb

social care forum

10.15am - 4.15pm 

We are all waiting with bated breath for the Supreme Court decision in CN & GN, a case which will have a huge practical impact on service providers. Previously the Court of Appeal was dismayed about the damages claims, that had been litigated with little regard to, or understanding of, the law and reality of social care practice. Join us and some of the team involved in the case to find out what might happen next, and analyse the practical effect for you of the Supreme Court judgment we all hope will come out over Christmas.

Whilst that judgment has been awaited many claims have been on ice, but to fill that gap we are seeing many of our clients being affected by:

  • pressure to consider Redress Schemes
  • the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse
  • claims being brought directly against them as fostering agencies
  • claims under the Human Rights Act
  • issues following the implementation of GDPR.

With this change and turmoil in mind, we are delivering this event aimed at directors and senior managers of children's care providers, fostering agencies, local authorities, children's charities, senior claims handlers and their insurers.

This is an opportunity for you to hear from the lawyers and other stakeholders at the forefront of these challenging developments throughout 2019, share your experiences and ideas with others, and explore the impact of alternatives to compensation claims and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) on social work practice and claims handling.

You will take home materials and ideas that you can use to improve the practice and development of your colleagues and the service you deliver to your clients now, and in the future.

We are also holding this event in the below locations:
