Thank you to all those that joined us for our Work and Care Together event on Monday 11th June. Our first convention was a great success with over 500 attendees! We were delighted to welcome such a huge variety of people – especially our main partner Cera Care, and our other brilliant partner companies, including CAN Training, Liquid Personnel, Critical Publishing, Moodbeam and many more!
The whole of the One Stop Social team have been working for months on end to put together our first convention. The team were at the venue for the whole of the day before working with The Index Group to set up stands, banners and everything else that comes along with putting together a convention! Thankfully, all the hard work paid off and we’re very proud of how the convention turned out!
Matt Hughes, Managing Director of One Stop Social, opened the event introducing Work and Care Together as a community for like-minded individuals to get together, network and share ideas on what it takes to build a positive, productive work culture of highly engaged employees in the Social Work and Care sector.
The day went on to attendees lining up for our sold out workshops including Child Sexual & Criminal Exploitation, Social Work Theory and End of Life Care. We also had a ‘Tech Team’ of postgraduate students filming and photographing the whole event, so keep an eye out for our highlights video coming out soon!
“The event was well organised and all the One Stop Social Staff were on hand throughout the day. We made some good connections on the day and hope to meet some of you again!” – Heather Maher at CAN Training
A huge thank you!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to our great speakers – Rosie Flatman, Siobhan Maclean, Robert Russell, Tristan Johnson from DoLSpro, Terri Shaw from Harm-Ed, Tina Training Initiatives, Suzie Doe and the team at Progress to Excellence. They were truly insightful and gave difference perspectives of specific topics in the Social Work field.
We really loved working with our featured innovative businesses – Goodgym, MiCarePlan, Moodbeam, iamYiam, Virtual College and DoLSpro – and can’t wait for our next collaboration. If you haven’t checked them out yet, make sure you do. Great things are happening there for the social work and care market.
A huge thank you to those who joined us in launching Work and Care Together and for those who attended. We see this as just the beginning of creating a highly active and connected community for like-minded social workers, care workers, students, job seekers, and everyone else in the social work world who wants to discuss current and future challenges, share knowledge, network and experiment with innovative ideas. We plan to provide the right platforms to do this and tailor future events around your needs and interests. So, whether you’re a company that would like to partner with us or just someone who would like to attend our next convention, please let us know what you’d like to see here.
