Event Summary

This is the conference that informs, networks and celebrates Registered Managers, Responsible Individuals, owners and those who support their leadership.

Children’s homes leaders are privileged to care for some of our most vulnerable children and play a significant role in their development and achievements. There are big changes proposed for the children’s homes sector by the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care. Right now, throughout the changes and beyond, leaders need to be informed, inspired and innovative.

This inaugural event celebrated the excellent and unsung achievements of the majority of homes by launching the awards ceremony for Registered Manager of the Year, Responsible Individual of the Year and Regulation 44 Visitor of the Year.
