Assets, Strengths, Resilience – Do we really have a vision?


Assets, Strengths, Resilience – Do we really have a vision? That was the question that kick-started the 20th IPC Partnership Networking Learning Event in Oxford in June, which was attended by nearly 60 representatives from 18 organisations including the Local Government Association, ADASS and several local commissioning authorities.

The event was an opportunity to explore the latest trends, developments and best practice in public care, with a view to driving improvement and innovation. Inspirational speakers delivered keynotes on a range of topics including:

  • Client-led quality assurance
  • Taking a different approach in extra care housing
  • Resilience service configuration, rapid response, falls – is it fit for purpose?
  • Market shaping and commissioning workstream
  • Community wellbeing and independence

Sharing their thoughts at the end of the two-day event, participants commented on the benefits and practical outcomes of attending the event:

A fantastic, stimulating and inspiring couple of days”

“A very inspiring and energising 36 hours!”

“Brilliant networking & discussions”

“Very stimulating and has generated some significant plans for my authority”

“The plenary sessions imparted great knowledge that will shape my organisation’s practice”
