The Care Show London is bringing the beloved Care Show spirit to our nation’s capital on 24-25 April, and will be the UK’s premier destination for leaders in social care looking to improve the quality of their service, deliver personalised care, achieve outstanding ratings, and transform the care sector.

This two-day conference and exhibition event provides the perfect opportunity to stay up-to-date with policy, regulation, and best practices, network with fellow care professionals and meet with leading service providers for the sector. With a comprehensive conference programme, designed specifically to address the current priorities and challenges in the care sector, you cannot afford to miss out! 

Topics & Trends: 

For the spring 2024 event, there is a big focus on celebrating the voice of care and providing positive takeaways to current challenges. The conference programme has been carefully curated with the assistance and full support of an Advisory Board, representative of all areas of social care.
