Following the success of our first technology event, Scottish Care is delighted to once again host our Technology and Digital event, Care Tech 2, an event dedicated to the design, development, use and future potential of technology in the Scottish social care sector.

The event will be held in the University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre on Friday 23rd August 2019.

Technology has an increasingly important role to play in all our lives. In social care, technology is being used to enable individuals to maintain their independence for as long as possible, to support staff more effectively in their work, and to ensure that individuals remain in control of their supports for as long as possible.

As well as hearing about cutting edge innovation, the event will provide an opportunity to consider what technology might mean for you in your home or workplace.

This event will explore some of the most creative technologies now available and some which are currently under development, and will bring together designers and developers, alongside people who us and work in social care services. We have three themes running during the day: 

Each of the themes will have workshops throughout the day which delegates are free to choose from. These will be delivered by subject specialists, designers and innovators, as well as provider and workforce presenters.

This will be a unique day and one not to be missed if you are interested in the shape of the care home and care at home/housing support sector in Scotland, both now and in the future.

We are delighted to confirm that the following organisations will be involved on the day:

  • Scottish Care
