News Release


ADASS join key sector partners in supporting the Great British Care Shows

We are delighted to announce that the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services have once again formally endorsed the Great British Care Shows.  

The shows are also supported by Ceretas, the English Community Care Association and Carers UK and will provide a unique networking opportunity, linking in with local commissioners, local care association and local service users and are set to be a significant date for the calendar in these regions.

Sarah Pickup, President for ADASS said,

"ADASS welcomes plans to run Great British Care shows. It is more important than ever that all of those involved in the commissioning and delivery of care learn from each other and that we take every opportunity to support the workforce to deliver quality care and maintain dignity. 

“The shows will allow people who have won awards for their own excellent practice to share their approach in more detail with others. The proposed format of the shows means that they should support our objective of making information and advice about care and support more readily available. 

“There should also be opportunities for providers and commissioners to engage in considering the types of services we need to develop and the different ways in which these could be commissioned."

Alex Shepherd, Events Manager for the Great British Care Shows said,

"We are delighted that ADASS are officially endorsing these significant events.  These care shows are not a trade show and are very much a local forum for local people.  The delegate programme will be about showcasing local resources, a platform for seeking advice about issues that face service users in the community as well as for providers, commissioners and professionals from the private residential and domiciliary care sectors.  The shows are set to become a important event in the social care calendar and the support from these key sector partners is extremely significant."
