Norfolk’s Care Convention on hold
Norfolk County Council have issued the following statement about the annual Norfolk Care Convention
As many of you will know, the Market Development Team at County Hall is the lead department for the Council’s involvement in the care convention. As part of the wider commissioning function, we are currently awaiting a review of our structure and activities. Discussions are also underway for the formation of a formal “Care Association” for Norfolk – an umbrella body for providers of adult social care.
In view of these major changes, we feel it is wrong to commit to the preparations for a care convention at this time. We propose to put a hold on any preparatory work pending some clarity about the future. If the situation becomes clear sufficiently quickly, we will endeavour to meet the planned November slot for the convention. However, it may be necessary to delay the convention date to allow sufficient time to plan and prepare. We will contact you when we have a clearer picture. We will consult with you about your ideas for a revised date if a change becomes necessary.
It is important to say that if partners wish to proceed with an event in November, without the guaranteed involvement of NCC, we would not object. The event, after all, belongs to us all.
