Building on the momentum of the 2023 National Care Awareness Survey Report, this interactive panel discussion will allow attendees to further explore the key findings and implications. Over 700 social care professionals shared their insights on the biggest opportunities and challenges facing the industry today, with recruitment, retention, training, funding, and wellbeing rising to the top.

Representatives from across the care sector will take the stage to discuss these issues in greater depth, providing their perspectives on the survey results. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions and join the conversation on how we can drive positive change in the sector.

All UK Care Week attendees are encouraged to bring their own experiences and ideas to the table during this open panel exchange that will shape the next phase of the initiative to support care professionals.
