After the success of our first convention in Manchester on 11th June 2018, we’re now coming to London!

On Thursday 24th January 2019, One Stop Social will be hosting our first major event in the capital city to give social work and care professionals the chance to network and attend engaging training workshops. Based at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, the second edition of Work and Care Together will be themed around education, collaboration and innovation with 25 training sessions and 20 exhibitors reflecting these values.

This convention will be an opportunity to bring together social workers and care professionals for a day of informed reflection on social work and care. In the heart of London – just down the Thames from Westminster – this convention will be a fun, engaging day of innovative thinking and professional development for everyone involved in social work and care. 

We're pleased to announce that our Main Partner for Work & Care Together in London will be West Sussex County Council. We're so excited to work together to bring you a great convention for social workers, care professionals, NQSWs and students.
