Tuesday 13 June 2017, 9.30am-4pm – Crowne Plaza, Saint Nicholas Place, Princes Dock, Liverpool, L3 1QW.
Liverpool Waves of Hope is part of the Big Lottery’s national Fulfilling Lives programme with the primary aim of influencing systems change to ensure there are appropriate services in place to support adults with complex needs.
With the programme now approaching the end of its third year, the primary focus is to begin a conversation around how local strategy, policy and delivery is being, and will be, influenced by Waves of Hope.
The Changing Times – Changing Systems conference will explore the opportunities and barriers that service users, policy makers and commissioners face, and discuss how systems change can be achieved. As well as showcasing some of the programme outcomes to date, the event will explore the gaps in the current system and what the implications are for future policy and commissioning.
The conference will be chaired by Dyane Aspinall, Director of Adult Social Care & Health, Liverpool City Council.
Three interactive workshops are planned which will highlight the strategic issues being faced:
- Co-production in the commissioning cycle
- Driving innovation in services
- Housing First – How it can happen in the Liverpool City Region
Keynote speakers include:
- Dr Henry Kippin, Chief Executive, Collaborate, who will talk about the wider lessons in achieving better collaboration and joined up networks of public services, based on extensive research and partnership working with public sector institutions
- Dr. Fiona Ogden Forde, Clinical Lead for Alcohol, Complex Needs and Healthy Ageing, Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, who will explore how the complex needs programme has progressed since November 2016, whilst presenting key highlights and findings and how collaboration and partnership is key to transformational change with a focus on policy and systems change locally
