Scottish Care is pleased to announce an Autumn Care Roadshow to take place across Scotland from September through to early November.

These eleven events will provide an opportunity for members and those interested in joining Scottish Care or those who would simply like to hear about our work, to consider the range of topics facing the care and support of older people across Scotland. We will be covering issues facing the care home, care at house and housing support sector.

There will be an opportunity to meet and hear from the Scottish Care CEO Dr Donald Macaskill and the National Director, Karen Hedge.

In every location we are delighted to be able to share the outcomes of a research project conducted by the School of Innovation at the Glasgow School of Art which has been exploring the ‘Future of Care’ for the care at home and housing support sectors in Scotland.

In some locations an additional afternoon session will be held by our Workforce Matters team who will explore specific themes related to the work they have been undertaking on recruitment and retention, palliative and end of life care, mental health and well-being and other topics.

A programme is available under each diary entry on our website.
