As a sector, we have achieved some amazing things over the last year, overcome major challenges and shown incredible strength. As we move on from the pandemic peaks of COVID-19, it is now more important than ever to lean into our collective learning and experiences, in order to improve the lives of the people and communities that we support.

This year’s theme is resilience with a focus on resilient services, resilient communities and resilience for the future. Join us for roundtables, expert case studies, interactive debate and the chance to connect with colleagues as we look at how we can respond collaboratively to address health inequalities in the sector.
