Ed Balls, former shadow chancellor and presenter of BBC TV’s Inside the Care Crisis documentary, will take to the stage at UK Care Week Live, which takes place from 6-7 July at NEC Birmingham.
The former Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer will join other noted names from the care sector in this summer’s CPD accredited seminar programme. Balls will be joined on the keynote stage by the likes of Claire Johnsen, head of innovation at Hallmark Care Homes, Vic Rayner OBE, CEO of the National Care Forum and Jane Townson, CEO of The Homecare Association.
Since leaving politics, Balls has established a new public role affording him the opportunity to be open about his personal passions including raising awareness of the care crisis. The BBC documentary, Inside the Care Crisis, offers a first-hand portrayal of front line care work.
UK Care Week provides a platform for the sector to collaborate and seek support on solving staff recruitment and retention challenges, providing staff support, accessing finance, offering training and promoting employee wellbeing. Further sessions include CPD accredited content on nutrition, dementia, care development, sustainability, technology and digital transformation.
The event, expected to host more than 3,000 visitors, will feature the Virtual Dementia Tour, CQC Inspector Hub and the Activities Arena in association with NAPA.
Care Home Management will also be at the event, with exciting news of our forthcoming 100th celebrations.
