How can we co-operate for better care and wellbeing?’
Date: 13th April 2018
Time: 11am – 3pm
Location: Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndŵr University
From start-ups to transformations, and from citizens to commissioners,
how can we co-operate for better care and well-being?
One of the aims of the Social Co-operation Forum is to bring people together to encourage co-operation and to create an environment in which social care co-operatives can grow. As a result of this passion we are organising an exciting event focussing on ways of increasing the voice and control of users and carers in the provision of care. We will focus on two main areas on the day:
1. Encouraging more start-up social co-ops – we will explore how we can encourage the growth of the micro co-op and start up models including personal assistant co-ops: Gareth Rogers from Care to Co-operate will be discussing the work the project has done up until now and the opportunities this model will present in the future.
2.Surfacing ways in which commissioning and procurement can promote “social value” organisations – from nurturing new grassroots co-ops to transforming existing providers – Adrian Roper, Cartrefi Cymru Co-operative will discuss what “social value” organisations are, and why support from commissioning and procurement is vital.
There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and debate and the event is open to all. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
All are welcome to attend. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
