CFW welcomes the Five Nations Care Forum to Cardiff

Care Forum Wales is delighted to be hosting the latest meeting of the Five Nations Care Forum in Cardiff Bay on 10-11 March 2016.

The Five Nations Care Forum is an alliance of 11 professional organisations across the UK and Ireland.  Together we represent 11,000 providers who care for over 600,000 people in a variety of settings. Through a collective commitment to information sharing, joint lobbying, shared learning and support, we aim to add value to our members' services by promoting the interests of service recipients, staff and providers.  The Forum seeks to encourage a joined up approach to matters that have a UK-wide or European dimension.  High on the agenda will be the impact of the national living wage,

Distinguished guests of the Forum include Mark Drakeford AM (Minister for Health and Social Services); Sarah Rochira (Older People's Commissioner for Wales); John Kennedy (independent consultant); Arwel Ellis Owen (Chair Care Council for Wales); David Francis (Assistant Chief Inspector CSSIW) and Lisa Dunsford (Deputy Director for Integration and Policy, Welsh Government).  Discussions will centre on the impact of the national living wage, sustainability and nurse recruitment.  We will keep you posted on the actions coming out of the meeting.
