Call for Conference Contributions

16th July 2018

We are pleased to invite contributors to this year’s Carers Conference who would like to deliver a talk or a workshop to unpaid carers and professionals working with carers.

We are looking for:

  • 15-minute presentation to a full audience followed by Q&A session
  • 45-minute interactive workshop in a breakout group

We are seeking contributions that will benefit both unpaid carers and professionals, be informative and inspiring.

We are looking for a range of themes of key importance to carers, for example (but not exhaustive to):

  • Health, social care and well-being;
  • Case studies and lived experience of unpaid carers;
  • Improving the lives of people with dementia and carers;
  • Combining work and care (how can we support people to manage their working and caring lives, contributing to economic and social sustainability?);
  • Technology in care and support (how can new technologies support the delivery of care, transform the lives of individuals and families and drive economic growth?);
  • Life after caring.

If the talk/presentation you would like to share with attendees at the Carers Conference doesn’t fit any of the themes above we are open to innovative projects and ideas.

To submit a proposal please complete our online submission form at

Please be sure to identify a lead presenter with whom all correspondence will take place.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 10th  August 2018
